The city of Bellevue recently announced the partial closure of Bellevue Way Northeast on Friday.

The public is advised to allow for extra time to get around downtown Bellevue on Friday, Oct. 13. Bellevue Way Northeast, from Northeast Eighth to Northeast 10th Street, will be closed in both directions, 4-8:30 p.m., due to a planned protest.

The counter-rally, organized by the Equity in Education Coalition, is scheduled to take place outside the Washington Policy Center’s annual dinner at the Hyatt Regency Bellevue. U.S. Education Secretary Betsy DeVos is the keynote speaker at the dinner.

The Bellevue Police Department will have extra officers on duty during the event, city officials said.
