156th Avenue NE Roadway Improvements

Location: Bellevue, WA
Client: City of Bellevue

Residential and commercial growth in the Crossroads area made this one of Bellevue's busiest streets. In turn, this made the need for streetscape and access improvements increasingly apparent. After analyzing traffic data and pedestrian flows, Otak recommended several functionality and aesthetic improvements to enhance traffic patterns, pedestrian facilities and overall safety. And through an extensive public involvement program, these alternatives were then integrated with a public art program to reflect the City's culture, as well as its progress.
