SECTION-DESIGN.jpgThis section design depicts a northbound, bus-only lane, called a queue-jump, planned for 108th Avenue Northeast, between Northeast 53rd and 68th streets.

The City of Kirkland is re-designing a 15-block section of 108th Avenue Northeast to include a pair of transit-only lanes that will allow buses to bypass traffic back-ups.

The $9.25 million project will create sidewalk-level bicycle lanes, new sidewalk and a landscaped median that separates people who are bicycling and walking from automobiles.

Kirkland's project engineers expect to complete design in Fall 2024 and to begin construction in winter 2025.
