"Separated bike lanes are coming to Downtown Bellevue," reports Stephen Fesler. "It’s the first big foray into all-ages and abilities bike infrastructure for Bellevue’s city center."

The new separated bike lanes will be installed over the next several weeks, according to Fesler, on 12 blocks of 108th Ave NE stretching from Main St to 12th St NE. The city is calling the project a demonstration project, so several different bike lane techniques and treatments will be built. Fesler provides plenty of detail about where and how the project will be implemented.

Fesler adds that "Bellevue is also in the process of building out a wider bicycle network, which the city is calling a 'bicycle rapid implementation program' for some 52 separate projects."
