• NW Bellevue Walkways and Safety Improvements

    In consultation with neighbors, schools and stakeholders, the Neighborhood Transportation Safety Services group developed a traffic improvement strategy for the Northtowne area, along 100th Avenue Northeast, between Northeast 24th and Northeast 14th streets. The project also includes some side streets between 100th Avenue Northeast and 98th Avenue Northeast. The work focuses on addressing concerns about speeding and the need to improve safety for people who walk and bicycle in the neighborhood and around schools nearby. Phase 1 of the project, including the construction of a roundabout at 100th Avenue Northeast and Northeast 10th Street, was completed in spring 2021.
