The Totem Lake Connector will be a bicycle and pedestrian bridge, that will connect the two ends of the 5.75-mile Cross Kirkland Corridor currently severed by one of Kirkland’s most complicated intersections: Totem Lake Boulevard and Northeast 124th Street.
The Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) has begun presenting to the public its preliminary concepts for a new Northeast 132nd Street freeway interchange.
Totem Lake Park is a 17-acre site located in the heart of the Totem Lake Urban Center. Broadly, the park will feature walking trails, boardwalks, play areas and a grassy lawn.
Members of the City of Kirkland team assigned to widening 124th Avenue Northeast are consulting with businesses along the corridor this month to understand how design proposals would affect them.
The re-designed corridor will feature two lanes in each direction, as well as wide sidewalks and sidewalk-level bicycle lanes.
Kirkland earned a $4.83 million grant in November from Washington’s Transportation Improvement Board that will help fund a series of improvements on sections of Totem Lake Boulevard and 120th Avenue Northeast.
