Road closure:120th Avenue Northeast, from the 1400 block to the 1600 block, will be closed in both directions from Sept. 6, 2016, until March 31, 2017. Construction hours will be 6:30 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Thursday. The detour route is on 124th Avenue Northeast or 130th Avenue Northeast. Travelers are advised to avoid using 116th Avenue Northeast, due to a separate construction project on Northup Way that is impacting the 116th Avenue intersection.
The city is widening 120th Avenue Northeast to five lanes with two travel lanes in each direction, turn pockets or a center turn lane, bike lanes and sidewalks from Northeast 12th Street to Northup Way. The project will also include intersection improvements at Northup Way.
The 120th Avenue Northeast projects will create a north-south arterial to increase connectivity between downtown, the BelRed corridor and the Overlake area. Once completed, these improvements are expected to provide congestion relief at key intersections and enhance travel times for cars, transit, freight, pedestrians and bikes.
