This project will redevelop 130th Avenue Northeast, from Bel-Red Road to Northeast 20th Street. It's one of several transportation investments in the BelRed areas that will improve mobility for people who walk, roll, take transit, drive and freight. The project will be designed in coordination with Sound Transit’s East Link light rail alignment, which will cross 130th Avenue along Spring Boulevard; it will include the BelRed-130th Station.

The project will facilitate travel between the new BelRed transit-oriented-development nodes and the wider region. It will support the redevelopment and vision for the BelRed area. Features will include two vehicle travel lanes, protected bike lanes, sidewalks and landscaping. The segment north of the future intersection with Northeast Spring Boulevard will have a pedestrian-oriented, retail-focused design with on-street parking. Other improvements will include turn lanes, mid-block crossings, intersection upgrades and better lighting.
