This fall, artist W. Scott Trimble will begin working with the project design team to create art integrated with the NE 8th Street Crossing Project. The crossing will be a bicycle/pedestrian bridge over Northeast 8th Street in Bellevue, providing a vital trail link on the Eastside Rail Corridor and safe access to Sound Transit’s Wilburton light rail station for pedestrians.

The bridge will connect trails on the Eastside from north to south, and will act as a gateway for pedestrians and cyclists. Trimble will be working closely with the project design team to integrate art that has visual impact and is thoughtful of the site and its prominent context in Bellevue. As a cyclist, he will bring an understanding of how the trail is used and consider its proximity to the Wilburton Trestle.

Trimble is a Seattle based artist who creates sculptural work for galleries, museums and public space His work often explores the built environment and considers how one can physically change their interaction with site and place.
