Bellevue City Council reviews design work on future 15th/16th Street
October 26, 2010 · 2:06 PM
The Bellevue City Council on Monday reviewed concepts for 15th/16th Street, a new roadway that eventually will become the centerpiece for redevelopment of the Bel-Red Corridor. The future East Link light rail line will run near, or on the new east-west street.
Discussion included the type and size of features to be included on the roughly 1.5-mile long roadway, such as the number of vehicle lanes, on-street parking, whether to have bike lanes or a bike-pedestrian pathway, and landscaping options. These decisions will determine how the various elements fit together and the width of the new street.
An open house is planned to provide more information on the project or to allow the public to comment on the 15th/16th Street project and other plans for the Bel-Red Corridor, as well as the nearby Wilburton Connections project. The session will be from 4:30-7 p.m. Nov. 9 at City Hall, 450 110th Ave. NE.
