More on Bellevue Way SE

Last Spring, the Bellevue Council approved up to thirty percent design work on the Bellevue Way SE project, including a possible extension of the project north to Bellevue Way SE and SE 16th. In addition to stretching out the merge approaching the S. Bellevue Park and Ride lot, this option could also improve turn pockets in and out of neighborhoods such as Enatai and Bellecrest.

To learn more about issues explored at last week’s project open house at Enatai School, read the following coverage from the Bellevue Reporter.

For a deeper dive in advance of our Public Affairs meeting this week and to take an online project survey through April 19th, visit the project webpage.
