Description and benefits
The Bellevue Transportation Department plans to
complete the following traffic safety improvements:

• Replace the temporary traffic circle at 138th
Avenue SE and SE 40th Street with a miniroundabout
designed to accommodate large
vehicles.
– Add a new crosswalk to the west leg of the
intersection for pedestrians crossing SE 40th
Street.
– Add curb ramps on the south leg of the
intersection for pedestrians crossing 138th
Avenue SE.
• Install a new sidewalk separated by a landscaped
planter on the west side of 138th Avenue SE
between SE Allen Road and SE 40th Street, next
to Tyee Middle School, to improve pedestrian
safety.
• Designate parking shoulders on 138th Avenue
SE/136th Place SE, between SE 40th Street and
SE 37th Street, to narrow the road and reduce
vehicle speeds.
• Install colored pavement across 136th Place SE
and 146th Avenue SE, south of SE 37th Street, to
notify drivers they are entering a residential area
and encourage slower speeds. Install “Residential
Area” signs at neighborhood entrances.

What to expect and when
Construction on the sidewalk and mini-roundabout
is anticipated to begin in late June and take
approximately 3 months to complete, weather
permitting. Please be prepared for traffic delays
during construction.

There will be temporary lane and road closures
in the area. Detours will be clearly marked
with appropriate signs directing motorists and
pedestrians.

Typical work hours during the summer will be
Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Weekend
work may occur.

For your safety
Thank you for your patience during construction and
for doing your part to be safe near the construction
zone. Drive safely and obey construction signs and
flaggers directing traffic. Please pay close attention
to people walking or biking in the area.

Funding
Funding comes from the Neighborhood Safety,
Connectivity and Congestion Levy and the
Neighborhood Traffic Safety Program. Estimated
construction cost is $805,000.
