Transportation System
. Traffic safety is continuing to improve over the long term, though the per capita injury rate rose in 2015 to 2.4 injuries per 1,000 daytime population from 2.2 in 2014. The transportation network continues to be built out, with the auto, truck, and pedestrian networks improving in 2015. The transit and bicycle networks did not change in 2015. The overall connectivity goal for Downtown decreased due to the location of new development, while much work remains to improve connectivity in Overlake Village and Redmond's other neighborhoods.

Environment. Redmond and the region continued to be in “attainment” for small particulate pollution in 2015. The amount of right-of-way with basic water quality treatment was unchanged at 27 percent in 2015.

Maintenance. Redmond's arterials have a pavement condition index of 76 as of 2015, above the target of 70. The number of water main breaks increased to 13 in 2015; there were no sewer overflows.

Condition: GreenCircle = good, YellowCircle = fair, RedCircle = poor. Trend: UpArrow= improving, RightArrow =maintaining, DownArrow = worsening.
