Northeast Spring Boulevard Zone 4 will extend the roadway east from 130th Avenue Northeast to 132nd Avenue Northeast. Features of the project will include one new eastbound and one westbound travel lane on Northeast Spring Boulevard, a new traffic signal at the intersection of Northeast Spring Boulevard and 130th Avenue Northeast and a buffered bike lane and a sidewalk in each direction, along with landscaping. Sound Transit’s BelRed/130th light rail station will occupy the middle of Northeast Spring Boulevard, between the vehicle lanes.
Zone 4 is one of several transportation system investments in the BelRed area that will improve mobility for cars, transit, freight, pedestrians and bicycles. The project will add traffic signals at 130th and 132nd avenues to coordinate the movement of vehicles, pedestrians and bicyclists with light rail trains, and will include better lighting and other improvements.
