Connections / Infrastructure
Goal: Provide convenient, safe and environmentally friendly transportation connection within Redmond and between Redmond and other communities for people and goods.

Community priority: I want a well-maintained city whose transportation and other infrastructure keeps pace with growth.
N/A Not enough data to assess trend over three most recent data points.

Transportation System. Traffic safety is improving in Redmond, with the per capita injury rate falling to 2.2 injuries per 1,000 daytime population, and no traffic fatalities in 2014. The transportation network continues to be built out, with the auto, truck, bicycle, and pedestrian networks improving through the beginning of 2015. The transit network did not improve due to Metro service cuts affecting Redmond. The overall connectivity goal for Downtown has been reached, 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 2014. The amount of right-of-way with basic water quality treatment increased to 27 percent through the beginning of 2015.

Maintenance. Redmond’s arterials have a pavement condition index of 75 as of 2013, above the target of 70. The number of water main breaks has decreased from 5 to 3 since 2011; the number of sewer overflows has decreased from 2 to 1 since 2011.
