Commuters, neighborhood residents and other interested parties are invited to attend an open house that will show design options for a proposed southbound high-occupancy vehicle lane on Bellevue Way, south of 112th Avenue Southeast.
The open house will be Jan. 19, 5-7 p.m., on the first floor of City Hall. Feedback from the event and from an online open house, will help the city identify a preferred option.
City staff are exploring ways to add a southbound HOV lane from the “Y” intersection of Bellevue Way and 112th Avenue Southeast to the South Bellevue Park and Ride. The purpose of the project is to increase capacity, reduce congestion and improve transit speed and reliability. Sound Transit will build the HOV segment between the park and ride and Interstate 90 as part of the East Link light rail project.
Open house attendees can comment on the proposed options, which would vary in length, width and project phasing. For those unable to attend, the online open house will allow them to conveniently view the materials and provide comments through Jan. 31.
