Northeast Spring Boulevard, formerly Northeast 15th/16th Street, will be a new multi-modal road through the Bel-Red area. It will facilitate the transformation of the Bel-Red area from a mainly light industrial area to a mixed-use corridor. NE Spring Boulevard will integrate different travel modes (walking, cycling and driving) with urban design elements, such as public art, street furniture, plants and trees, and natural drainage practices. The Spring Boulevard project also will accommodate regional trail connections and the future East Link light rail line, along with two light rail stations at 120th Avenue NE and 130th Avenue NE.
This corridor project is divided into five zones:
Fully funded for construction.
Funded for design; being built by Sound Transit
ZONE 1 (NE 12th St to 120th Ave NE) will include two travel lanes in each direction, from a new intersection at NE 12th Street to 120th Ave NE. The roadway will cross over the Eastside Rail Corridor and the new East Link light rail alignment. A multipurpose path will run along on the north side of the roadway and connect to the existing path at 116th Ave NE and NE 12th Street. Landscaping will separate the path from the roadway.
Zone 1 is fully funded through design and construction.
ZONE 2 (120th Ave NE to 124th Ave NE) will include two travel lanes in each direction and left turn pockets or lane or median with landscaping. There will be parking space or a drop-off zone along the north side of the roadway. The multipurpose pathway will be diverted north on 120th Ave NE, will run along NE 16th St, and return to Spring Blvd at 124th Ave NE. Wider sidewalks will flank both sides of the roadway, separated from the roadway with landscaped buffers. The new East Link light rail station will lie directly north.
Zone 2 is funded through design.
ZONE 3 (124th Ave NE to 130th Ave NE) will include one travel lane in each direction, with sidewalks and planters on both sides of the roadway. Shoulders on the roadway will permit bicycle use. The roadway will pass over the west tributary area and a new multipurpose path. The westbound lane will pass under the new light rail alignment.
Zone 3 is currently unfunded for design.
ZONE 4 (NE 130th Ave NE to 136th Ave NE) will include one travel lane in each direction, flanked by protected bike lanes, landscape buffers and sidewalks. The new 130th light rail station will lie between directions of traffic. Between 132nd Ave NE and 134th Ave NE, on-street parking will lie on both sides of the roadway. The roadway will pass over a newly day-lighted Goff Creek.
Zone 4 is partially funded for preliminary design and the westbound lane may be built by Sound Transit.
ZONE 5 (136th Ave NE to NE 20th St) will include a single travel lane in each direction, protected bike lanes, landscape buffers and sidewalks.
Zone 5 is funded for preliminary design and will be built by Sound Transit.
