Project Background: In 2014, a citizens’ group calling itself the Newport Way Sidewalk Committee attended several City Council meetings with the stated objective of having the City construct a sidewalk on one side of Newport Way to connect schools, library, churches and community center. In response to their request, a new project was created to provide roadway improvements to Newport Way between 150th Avenue SE and Somerset Boulevard.

Existing Roadway Condition: Along most of Newport Way between 150th Avenue and Somerset Boulevard there are currently no pedestrian or bicycle facilities. People walking and biking are forced to navigate narrow shoulders. Additionally, there are no crosswalks in this area, making it difficult to cross safely to popular neighborhood and regional destinations: churches, community center, libraries, parks and schools.
The City of Bellevue invites you to an open house about upcoming improvements on SE Newport Way between Somerset Boulevard SE and 150th Avenue SE. Come learn about the possibilities and give your feedback.
