Next Meeting (4/10)
Demonstration Bikeway Update
The City is proceeding forward with next steps on the 108th Demonstration Bikeway. BDA Members are invited to the upcoming Transportation Committee meeting to evaluate the City's collected findings on the demonstration. Members will review, discuss, and share feedback.
The Bellevue Transportation Commission is scheduled on 3/28 to review the Demonstration Bikeway findings and act on a transmittal recommendation to Council on 5/13. The BDA Transportation Committee is gathering between these two meetings to analyze the data and review community feedback to determine an appropriate action.
In 2017, the BDA Transportation Committee conducted a series of meetings to review the City’s implementation plans for a demonstration bike lane. The Committee produced a BDA Board-approved message to the Bellevue Transportation Commission advocating for a demonstration bikeway along 108th Ave NE. The message outlined the BDA’s expectations for safety, connectivity, impact mitigation, and performance metrics.
Early in 2018, the Council approved the Commission’s recommendation for a demonstration bikeway along 108th Ave NE. Construction began shortly afterwards and the bike lane opened in July 2018.
