Lower Coal Creek Flood Reduction

The City of Bellevue and the King County Flood Control District are jointly pursuing an engineering study to evaluate alternatives to reduce flood risk in the Newport Shores neighborhood. The engineering study will identify a preferred alternative for a future project(s) that, once implemented, will reduce flood risk throughout the neighborhood.

Over the past few months, Bellevue, along with a team of consultants, has analyzed the existing stream flow and stormwater conditions related to lower Coal Creek and identified potential solutions to reduce flood risk in the Newport  Shores neighborhood. The city would like to hear from the public about the options being considered to reduce flood risk.

This project will hopefully reduce flooding like this.

Anticipated Project Schedule

 Fall/Winter 2013  Engineering study of existing conditons; initial contact with public
 Winter 2014  Alternatives analysis; public involvement
 Spring 2014  Finalize pre-design and details of preferred alternative
 2014-2016  Preferred alternative design and permit acquisition
 2016-2017  Construction

Public Involvement
The community will have several opportunities to provide input over the course of the project. The Project Team hosted a booth at the city’s Spring Forward Expo in April 2013, had a meeting with the Newport Shores Homeowners Association in October 2013 and held a public forum May 12, 2014 to hear your thoughts on potential alternatives. Additional public approaches will be planned for future stages of the project. Public input will help the city understand flooding problems and select a flood risk reduction alternative.
How can I stay informed?
This page offers the most up-to-date information on the project. Additional materials and project information will be posted on the site as the project develops.
