BDA TRANSPORTATION COMMITTEE
Mobility Implementation Plan (MIP) Progress Update
The BDA Transportation Committee gathers for a City staff update on the Bellevue Transportation Commission’s work to complete the Mobility Implementation Plan (MIP). Members will learn about the City’s progress to establish metrics for pedestrian, bike and vehicle trips. Information will also be shared about upcoming work to model performance targets/areas and establish a toolkit that uses the metrics and performance measurements to prioritize capital projects for the Transportation Facilities Plan (FTP).
Recap of previous work
Last July, the BDA Board approved this Committee’s recommendation to update to the Comprehensive Plan with multimodal policies to lay the groundwork for advancing the MIP (read BDA letter). Those updates were approved by the Bellevue Transportation Commission later that month.

- Mobility Implementation Plan - Once commonly referred as “Transportation Master Plan”, the MIP is a long-term planning framework that consolidates existing transportation plans to ensure compatibility with land use policies and visions. Policy work on the MIP is expected to span all of 2021 and go into 2022.
- Curbside Management - Analyzing the growing issue of modes competing for curb space. The City of Bellevue is studying this challenge to support future work on solutions.
- I-405 South Downtown Access Study - City of Bellevue has partnered with WSDOT to examine opportunities for an access portal on I-405 in South Downtown. Funding will have to come from the State.
- Multimodal Network Connectivity - Increasing options relies on balanced, safe and accessible system for all modes. Ongoing work includes supporting opportunities that expands and diversify multimodal connectivity without stressing existing right of way. This recently includes BDA support for the N/S bikeway on 108th Ave NE and E/W bikeway extension on Main St.
- I-405 Capacity and Access - Advocating to WSDOT and the Washington legislature for critical investments to advance and complete the I-405 Master Plan. These investments are necessary for Sound Transit's Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) project plans, a program supported by the BDA.
