We are a multimodal and Vision Zero city with reliable and predictable transportation choices. Bellevue is well connected to the rest of the region and its activities via roads and transit. Bellevue’s entertainment, shopping and commercial centers are bustling and convenient to get around. Transportation Performance Data
Adequate regional road capacity handles a high demand. Regional roads limit the impact to neighborhoods from cut-through traffic. A state-of-the-art intelligent transportation system minimizes traveler wait times and frustration, as people are safely moved through the city. Public transportation is ample, with seamless, reliable connections and a wide variety of services, including local transit, circulator buses, taxis and ride-sharing services. Walking and biking are safe and enjoyable ways to get around.
Three-Year (2021-23) Priorities
2. Continue to execute our transportation capital plans for future growth and mobility of the city. Use the funding provided by the Neighborhood Safety, Connectivity and Congestion Levy to improve safety, transportation, and quality of life in neighborhoods.
3. Advocate with the state Department of Transportation and regional agencies for acceleration of the I-405 Corridor Program and completion of SR 520 improvements, including Bellevue projects (i.e. NE Sixth Street, 124th Avenue NE Interchange, braided ramps, Coal Creek Parkway).
4. Continue oversight of light rail construction and ensure that we implement an effective strategy for construction mitigation for neighborhoods, traffic and business.
