This project will redevelop 130th Avenue Northeast, from Bel-Red Road to Northeast 20th Street. 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, possibly mid-block crossings, intersection upgrades and better lighting.

The project will be designed in coordination with Sound Transit’s East Link light rail alignment, which will cross 130th Avenue along Spring Boulevard and will include the BelRed/130th Station.
