Our project is not yet over. It will likely span many years and require continued community support and presence to make sure our sidewalk remains a priority in the City Budget. We will remain an active group until the ribbon cutting of our new Newport Way Sidewalk that will link our communities together safely for generations to come.  Please join our group and support our priority of Newport Way sidewalks - for a safer community.

If you'd like to receive occasional e-mail updates on this project, drop a note to newportwaysidewalk@gmail.com and we'll add you to the list. Otherwise, check back here periodically for the latest.

To show your appreciation and continued support, it would be helpful to send a thank-you message to the City Council at council@bellevuewa.gov.

Construction starting soon!

Construction beginning March 30th. See "Current Status" for details.

We are a group of neighbors working together to promote the construction of a safe sidewalk and bike lanes along a dangerous stretch of Newport Way that connects Tyee Middle School, Edgebrook Swimming Pool, the Community Center, the Library, Eastgate Park, Aldersgate Church and Day Care Center. More information can be found on the "About" page.

Current Status

Update Feb 15, 2020: Construction is scheduled to begin on March 30th, 2020. During construction hours (9am-4pm weekdays), traffic traveling Newport Way from 150th Ave to Allen Road will be one way westbound, with an eastbound detour along Allen Road starting at Allen Road and Newport Way (see map below). Outside construction hours, it will be restored to normal two-way traffic.

Connecting our schools, library, churches and community center
