• NW Bellevue Walkways and Safety Improvements

    100th Ave NE Complete Streets Project Map













    In consultation with neighbors, schools and stakeholder, the Neighborhood Transportation Safety Services developed a traffic improvement strategy for the Northtowne area, along 100th Avenue Northeast, between Northeast 24th and Northeast 14th streets. It also includes selected side streets between 100th Avenue Northeast and 98th Avenue Northeast. This strategy will focus on addressing concerns about speeding and the need for safe walking and bicycling in the neighborhood and nearby schools. 

    Area residents have received mailers about Phase 1 improvements, including the construction of a roundabout at 100th Avenue Northeast and Northeast 10th Street, which were completed in spring 2021. Construction of a second phase of improvements is projected to begin in fall 2022 and will include:

    • Sidewalk on the north side of NE 18th St (98th Ave NE to 100th Ave NE), east side of 98th Ave NE (NE 18th Street to NE 20th Street), north side of NE 21st St (98th Ave NE to 100th Ave NE),
    • Shared use walkway on the east side of 100th Ave NE (NE 14th St to NE 24th St)
    • Raised intersections on 100th Ave NE at NE 14th, 18th and 21st sts.
    • Enhanced decorative crosswalks will be installed on 100th Ave NE at NE 15th St and NE 23rd St. 


    $1.3 million for Phase 1, funded by the Neighborhood Safety, Connectivity and Congestion Levy and other sources.
