    Thank you to Bridle Trails residents for your participation in the Neighborhood Enhancement Program in 2018!

    Three capital improvement projects are coming to your area:

    NE 40th St Restriping between 140th Ave NE and 146th Ave NE:

    In January 2020, this Bridle Trails project was increased from restriping to full sidewalk:

    From Restriping to NEW Sidewalk!  NE 40th Street from 140th Avenue NE to 14500 block NE: This project will construct a sidewalk with planter strip on the north side of NE 40th Street from 140th Avenue NE to approximately the 14500 block, filling in the missing gap. In conjunction with the sidewalk project, bike lanes will also be implemented along the NE 40th corridor. Other elements to be considered with this project will be speed radar feedback signs, a speed limit evaluation and a marked pedestrian crossing near 142nd Avenue NE. This project is being made possible by utilizing the NEP funds that were voted in by the neighborhood in 2018, along with funds from the Transportation’s Neighborhood Sidewalk Program and the Neighborhood Safety and Connectivity levy.  Estimated Project Completion: Summer 2023. (NEP funding $75,750 + Transportation department budgets $1,650,000)
