Public-Private Partnerships

Through a public-private partnership, Microsoft has generously funded several projects that benefit our Redmond environment and community.

Microsoft and the City formed a Community Facilities District (CFD) to make the projects a reality.

 RTS Bridge

Redmond Technology Bridge

The Redmond Technology Bridge will improve mobility, safety, and accessibility in the Overlake neighborhood by providing a new east-west trail connection across SR 520 for pedestrians and bicyclists.

NE 31st Street Improvements

NE 40th

NE 40th Street Trunkline

This project constructed a water quality treatment facility adjacent to the Overlake Technology Light Rail Station. The facility serves one of Redmond’s highest traffic volume (and highest pollutant load) areas by intercepting flow from SR 520 and NE 40th Street and discharges cleaned water to the existing drainage path, which eventually flows to Villa Marina Creek and Lake Sammamish.
