As part of a larger effort to make Totem Lake a walkable, vibrant, and green urban center, the City of Kirkland is improving the 124th Avenue Northeast corridor between Northeast 116th Street and Northeast 124th Street. This project, along with other efforts in the area, will enhance connectivity to the Village, Totem Lake Park and other local hubs.
Anticipated improvements along the 124th Avenue Northeast corridor will include:
• Widening the roadway to five lanes
• Adding amenities, including street trees and lighting
• Enhancing transit stops
• Widening sidewalks
• Creating buffered, sidewalk-level bicycle lanes
As part of design, the project team is exploring new urban design elements, such as fencing, landscaping, and lighting to give the corridor a visual sense of identity and improve safety for walking, bicycling and driving.
