We’re spreading the word: The City of Bellevue wants to hear from you on the Downtown Demonstration Bikeway Project–a proposed “high-comfort” bikeway pilot in downtown Bellevue.
Join the Transportation Department and Choose Your Way Bellevue for three “pop-up” events at Bellevue Connection Compass Plaza (NE 6th St & 106th Ave NE, near the Food Trucks where Live at Lunch was frequently held this summer) for more information leading up to the Open House. Learn about the benefits and trade-offs of concepts along four candidate streets and help pick the street and design that balances the community’s priorities.
The first event is Wednesday, November 15 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., followed by another on November 21 and again November 28, both from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
This concept comes from the Pedestrian and Bicycle Implementation Initiative. From the city’s news release:
“The Transportation Commission will review community feedback and make a recommendation about a demonstration project to the City Council in early 2018. If the project moves forward, the bikeway could be installed by mid-2018 and would be evaluated through at least December 2018. Bicycle, vehicle and pedestrian traffic would be monitored, and adjustments would be made to improve operations if necessary. If the demonstration is successful, more permanent upgrades could be installed in the future. ”
You also have until December 31 to complete the online survey, letting the city know what ideas you have for the bikeway.
Want to come to the Open House?
The City of Bellevue will hold an open house on the Downtown Demonstration Bikeway Project at City Hall (450 110th Avenue NE) on Thursday, November 30 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., where you can learn more and provide your input.
Check out the city’s website for more information about the open house and what’s under way.
