Cross Kirkland Corridor

Kirkland, WA

Formerly a boundary, the Cross Kirkland Corridor is being reimagined as a central spine and destination that unites Kirkland’s neighborhoods and serves a broad range of users. The master plan defines a corridor that will include active and passive recreation as well as preserve and create wildlife habitat. The interim corridor has already activated and become a catalyst for business development and investment for underutilized areas along its route.

The master plan defines a corridor that evolves over time and leads the city toward achieving existing and future policy and development goals. It is designed to adapt and evolve to meet the needs of a growing city and region, including balanced transportation solutions for today and one day could include high capacity transit and rail. The layout of near-term and long-term corridor elements minimizes fragmentation of the corridor and maintains maximum connectivity in the public realm while allowing transit, rail and utilities to be integrated in a way that builds on, rather than negatively impacts, cumulative improvements to the corridor.

One of the more striking observations of travelling the corridor is the rhythm of quiet, heavily vegetated zones and active, urban areas. The master plan builds upon this rhythm and strengthens the contrast with the location and character of proposed trail amenities.
