Northeast Spring Boulevard is a new mile-long, multimodal, east-west roadway being built in phases from Northeast 12th Street to 136th Place Northeast. The new street bisects the BelRed area, improves mobility and helps unlock development potential in the area. Northeast Spring Boulevard also will accommodate regional trail connections and complement the future East Link light rail line, with light rail stations at 120th Avenue Northeast and 130th Avenue Northeast.
