5th Ave NE Improvements at Northgate

With just some “punch list” (industry talk for tieing up loose ends) items left, the improvements to 5th Avenue NE in Northgate – Phase II – are complete! 

 

Phase I, completed in 2007, improved three blocks of 5th Ave NE abutting Northgate Mall.  Now 5th Avenue is pretty on both sides of NE Northgate Way with the addition of three new crosswalks; a new median to prevent illegal left turns onto 5th Avenue NE, from the NE corner of the intersection; and new sidewalk and curb along the west side of 5th Avenue NE, north of NE Northgate Way, adjacent to the new Urban Center Park now under construction. Later this year landscaping and new street trees will also be added to the area.
