120th Ave NE to Close Starting March 6
Road to be closed for 5-8 months for construction
KIRKLAND, Wash – Afive to eight month closure of 120th Ave NE for construction associated with the Village at Totem Lake project was previously announced as starting at the end of February. The closure has been delayed and will now begin on March 6, 2017. The closure allows for the installation of new water and sewer utility mains through the roadway and complete reconstruction of the street. The road will be rebuilt into a pedestrian-friendly area with new amenities including wide sidewalks, landscaping, and a cycle track that is separated from the roadway. A rendering of the finished street is available on the City of Kirkland website.
The road will be closed from Totem Lake Way to the northernmost driveway to Trader Joe’s, and the grocery store can be accessed from this northern entrance. Drivers will need to use alternate routes to travel through the area. Northbound traffic is being routed along Totem Lake Boulevard. Southbound traffic is being routed west on NE 128th St to 116th Ave NE. All businesses to the north and south of the closure on 120th Ave NE will be open and accessible throughout construction.
