The Pedestrian Program creates and implements plans, policies, and projects to make a successful pedestrian system. This program funds high priority sidewalks and shared-use paths to improve pedestrian safety and comfort. Projects leverage grants to maximize pedestrian system completion for dollar spent by Redmond.
The City typically bundles a group of locations into one construction project. below is a list of upcoming projects from this program.
The City is hosting Design Drop-Ins at the NE 88th St. and 134th Ave NE project sites on Saturday, March 21, 2015. Members of the design team will be walking the project site, available to answer your questions, so look for us in safety vests! We will be at the NE 88th St. site from 9:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m. and at the 134th Ave NE site from 12:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. See the drop-in postcard linked below for further information.

PROJECTS IN DESIGN
Estimated Timeline: Construction is estimated to begin in spring 2015 and be completed in fall 2015.
Contract: Eric Dawson, 425-556-2723
NE 88th Street - Between 166th Ave. NE & NE 171st Ave. NE
This project fills in a missing segment of sidewalk along NE 88th Street between 166th Avenue NE and NE 171st Avenue NE. The new sidewalk will be six feet wide and made of permeable concrete. The addition of sidewalk will impact stormwater collection, roadway width, and existing parking within the roadway right-of-way.
Redmond Way - Between 142nd Ave. NE & 148th Ave. NE
This project will construct 1,900 feet of permeable concrete sidewalk on the north side of Redmond Way. The width will generally be six feet but will be reduced to five feet in spot locations to avoid existing utility poles. The design will include building retaining walls, relocating the existing guardrail, and restriping the existing lanes on Redmond Way.
This project will be funded in part by a Washington State Department Transportation Improvement Board (TIB) grant.
NE 68th Street - West of 184th Ct. NE
This project will design and construct a six-foot wide permeable concrete sidewalk on the north side of NE 68th Street, west of 184th Court NE where a roughly 400 foot sidewalk gap exists. The design will address utilities and effectively utilize existing curb and gutter.
NE 134th Street - Between 75th Ave. NE & 80th Ave. NE
This project will design and construct a six-foot wide permeable concrete sidewalk on the east side of NE 134th Street. The design will address utilities, evaluate existing landscaping, and effectively utilize existing curb and gutter when applicable.
For this project, the City has applied for Safe Routes to School grant funding. If awarded grant funds, this segment may be bid as a separate project. Currently, this project is only funded for design. Construction will occur if funding is acquired.
NE 116th Street - At 162nd Ave. NE
This project will construct 200 feet of permeable concrete sidewalk to fill a gap in the existing sidewalk. The design will not impact the existing roadway channelization.
