Bellevue's oldest building to move
Thursday, August 25, 2016

Bellevue's oldest surviving structure, the Burrows Cabin, is moving. Built by Civil War veteran Albert Burrows in 1883, the cabin will be transported early Friday from its current spot off of 112th Avenue Northeast to Chism Beach Park.

In the wee hours, the humble log house will roll through downtown on a trailer, past the city's sleek, modern skyscrapers. According to the Eastside Heritage Center, this is the third relocation for the cabin, which Burrows built at the foot of Southeast 15th Street near Lake Washington.

Planned outage for city website Friday night
core network

The city is upgrading its core computer network Friday night, and the city website and non-essential phone lines will be unavailable after 7 p.m. Emergency dispatch will not be affected, and people will still be able to call 911. The downtime should be about six hours, but could extend up to 12, until 7 a.m., Saturday.

The upgrade will result in improved voice quality on some phone calls, more bandwidth for city computers and increased reliability -- eliminating single points of failure.
