The Access Bellevue initiative is a collaborative communications effort to keep the public informed about East Link light rail and surrounding construction occurring in Bellevue.
Bellevue Way SE roadway restoration, traffic impacts
Portions of the roadway on Bellevue Way SE are planned to be paved in summer 2020. This work will impact traffic. Weekend full and partial roadway closures are planned. Read the details in a mailer sent to the Downtown and most West Bellevue residents and businesses.
Access Bellevue mailer
In January 2019, homes and businesses in Bellevue received a "Access Bellevue" mailer (booklet) that includes a recap and look ahead of East Link light rail construction, an update on city projects and initiatives in BelRed, a status of park improvements, and resource lists for businesses, neighborhoods and commuters. Bellevue homes and businesses will be receiving a third edition of the Access Bellevue mailer in April 2020.

Access Bellevue Communications Committee
In late 2016, the city formed the Access Bellevue Communications Committee as an information-sharing network. Representatives include large and small employers, transportation and transit agencies and business advocacy organizations. The committee is typically convened when there are significant construction updates to share that will present mobility impacts in and around Bellevue. Typically, Sound Transit provides an update on East Link light rail construction.
