Kirkland begins laying Totem Lake's new groundwork
Update (Dec. 10, 2019) -- Work on the Totem Lake Connector doesn’t begin until spring 2020. But the work to prepare for the pedestrian and bicycle bridge begins Dec. 16.
Until Jan. 20, Kirkland’s job order contractor will be re-routing a sewer main away from the future site of the Totem Lake Connector and northwest, along Totem Lake Boulevard.
To make room for the bridge, Forma Construction will close Totem Lake Boulevard's southbound lanes, as well as its center turn lane.
The Totem Lake Connector is the most visible aspect of Kirkland's ambitious effort to transform Totem Lake into a walkable, vibrant and green urban center, where people can live, work and play. Throughout the next three years, the City will also rebuild Totem Lake Boulevard and create 11-foot-wide sidewalks
along it. Same goes for 120th Avenue Northeast and Totem Lake Way. Kirkland will renovate Totem Lake Park
into a regional destination, re-design 124th Avenue Northeast into a five-lane roadway that features sidewalk-level bicycle lanes and wide sidewalks. The City will also reduce the risk of flooding
along Totem Lake Boulevard.
With help from its regional partners, the City of Kirkland is laying the groundwork for a walkable, vibrant and green urban center. Click here to learn more about these public infrastructure projects.
