The first phase of work on 124th Avenue Northeast requires closing the roadway in both directions, from Northeast 12th Street/Bel-Red Road to Northup Way. The closure is scheduled to begin Sept. 9, 2019 and end in June 2020. During that time access to businesses will be maintained from each end of the closure. Detour routes will be on 120th, 130th and 132th avenues northeast; the truck detour will be on 120th Avenue Northeast. Construction Alert
Improvements to the 124th Avenue Northeast Corridor, from Northeast Eighth Street to Northup Way, have been split into four projects to better facilitate funding and coordination with other projects and developments in the area. When all four segments are completed, they will connect and have several elements in common.
The corridor will be widened to five lanes and have either a multi-purpose pathway or a sidewalk separated from the roadway by a planter strip. Other improvements will include new traffic signals, and street lights, landscaping and "urban design" features. When complete, the enhancements will be compatible with expected future development and make it easier for people to get around the BelRed area.
