On April 23, 2012, City Council accepted the Eastgate/I-90 Land Use and Transportation Project.
Implementation of the project is underway and will occur in several phases. Land use implementation will include changes to the Comprehensive Plan and the Land Use Code. Transportation implementation has been included in the Transit Master Plan and also includes the construction of the Mountains to Sound Greenway Trail .
From 2010 to 2012 the City of Bellevue evaluated land use and transportation alternatives for the Eastgate/I-90 regional employment corridor to help ensure that the area continues to attract and retain employers, provides a mix of services to surrounding neighborhoods and serves as a vibrant and significant contributor to Bellevue's economic health in the coming decades.
The major focus of this project is the commercial area fronting I-90, one of the city’s major employment centers, containing approximately 18 percent of the city’s total employment. The study area is generally bounded by I-405 to the west, Southeast 26th Street to the north, 161st Avenue Southeast to the east, and Southeast 38th Street to the south, along with an extension east to the Lakemont Boulevard interchange. It includes portions of the Eastgate, Factoria and Richards Valley subareas.
