Dual Left-Turn Lanes on 124th Avenue Northeast


The dual left-turn lanes will add automotive capacity to 124th Avenue Northeast's intersection with Northeast 116th Street.

WHAT: An effort begins January 2018 to reduce congestion, increase automotive safety and capacity at 124th Avenue Northeast's intersection with Northeast 116th Street. Kirkland will reconfigure the northbound-to-westbound leg of the intersection to include a pair of left-turn lanes. To accommodate the new left-turn lanes, Kirkland’s transportation engineers will adjust the signals’ timing.
WHY: The intersection suffers from a disproportionate share of the City's traffic collisions. Left-hand turns cause nearly 60 percent of those crashes. 
WHEN: Project engineers expect construction to begin in early winter 2018 on the dual left-turn lanes and to be complete by the middle of spring 2018.
