June 6 Update: Bellevue Way SE Project community open house is now scheduled for Wednesday, June 15, 5-7 PM at Bellevue City Hall. See attached brochure for more information.
Traffic volumes are building on Bellevue Way SE and the City is exploring design options for an additional southbound lane, between the “Y” intersection with 112th SE and the existing park and ride lot.
While planners are assuming the new lane will be configured for HOV, the decision has not yet been finalized.
Similarly, there is no funding yet identified for construction and the project is not expected to begin until after the opening of the new South Bellevue Station 2023.
Adding capacity to Bellevue Way SE has long been a priority for the Chamber. We can have a major impact on the preferred alternative, help secure funding and support accelerated implementation .
Fill out the attached survey and return via USPS or bring it with you to the community open house.
