East Bellevue Demonstration Greenway Feedback Questionnaire

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Welcome to the East Bellevue Demonstration Greenway Feedback Questionnaire! We designed the Greenway, located primarily along 166th and 165th avenues, to create a safer, more comfortable corridor for people who walk and bike around the neighborhood. The two-mile long Greenway runs from Southeast 14th Street to Northup Way. Being a “demonstration” project means quick-build, low-cost treatments have been temporarily installed to receive community feedback from those who travel the corridor and live near it. Your responses to the questions here will help us determine whether to keep or refine the treatments recently installed and to further gain a greater understanding for future greenways. This feedback questionnaire site will be available through early 2022.



Greenway Treatments

  • New pavement markings to raise awareness of bicyclists on the corridor
  • Demonstration traffic circles at several intersections
  • Stop sign repositioning at key intersections
  • Wayfinding signs directing people to nearby destinations
  • Speed reduction to 20 mph speed from 25 mph


Project Goals

  • Increasing the number of bicyclists and pedestrians along the corridor
  • Raising awareness to people walking riding bicycles
  • Lowering vehicle speeds along the Greenway route
  • Improving perceived safety along the Greenway route


Feedback Questionnaire

The following questions explore your typical modes of travel within Bellevue and your experiences and observations of the East Bellevue Demonstration Greenway. There are voluntary demographics questions that we’d appreciate you answering.

    I live on the Greenway at 41 165th Ave SE. Motorized & non-motorized vehicles tends to gain speed starting from the Main Street going south due to the roadway steep downward gradient. My house sits on a curve which has some blind spots. It’s impossible to see bikers & vehicles when I’m backing from my driveway. Bikers are not able to slow down as they have already gained momentum on the downward roadway gradient. I request you to analyze this section to add traffic calming device such as speed humps, or signage indicating blind corners and to reduce speed due to limited visibility. The goal is to prevent any accident.

    Thanks for posting your request for traffic calming. We are in the evaluation phase of the project and collecting observations and feedback. Depending on this data, certain treatments may be modified or removed. Your suggestion will be considered. Any permanent changes to the Greenway will likely happen in mid-2022.

    You state four goals for the project. How are you measuring the success/failure of those goals?

    Karl asked about 1 month ago

    Thanks Karl for the question about project evaluation. We are collecting usage data during the demonstration period. We gathered vehicle, pedestrian and bicycle usage before installation, and will be collecting data soon to compare before-and-after conditions. Other measurements will be based on questionnaire responses and other collected feedback.

    Why were new stop signs installed in the same intersections as the new traffic circles? Seems awfully redundant and wasteful of limited project resources...

    G asked about 1 month ago

    Hi G, 

    Thanks for your question. The design of stop signs at intersections with new traffic circles was determined based on site geometry and greenway intent. Several intersections had stop signs flipped to control the east & west directions, which allows bicyclists to maneuver without needing to stop or yield. Some intersections became all-way stops due to site geometry constraints. Stop sign modifications were less than 10% of total project cost.

    Can pedestrians use either bike crossing on NE 8 St? Are there plans to add flashing lights for pedestrian crossing on NE 8 St? (Like by Crossroads Park)

    Tamara asked about 1 month ago

    Pedestrians should continue to use the marked crosswalk on the west side of the intersection. There are currently no plans for adding flashing lights at this intersection; however, future upgrades may be identified at this location based on user feedback.

    When is the soonest these will be removed if these ‘calming circles’ are not wanted.

    Janine asked about 1 month ago

    Modifications to the greenway design will be based on user feedback and experiences. Changes to the greenway, including the circles, would occur during the next construction season in spring 2022.

    Why in the world would you spend our tax money this way? It is annoying, ugly and useless. I have lived here for over 40 years, ride my bike, and have found nothing wrong with the way things were. Total eyesore and ridiculous.

    same asked about 1 month ago

    Thank you for your questions; others probably have the same one. 

    This greenway project builds on the success of the Healthy Street corridor along 165th/166th that was created in summer 2020 during the pandemic. The Healthy Street corridor limited non-local traffic to provide more room for people to safely move while social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic. The pilot was positively received by the community and resulted in more people walking and biking. 

    This particular corridor has long been in city plans as a vital bike corridor for Bellevue’s bicycle network. Low-cost materials and quick-build elements are now installed at an approximate cost of $200,000 to make it more comfortable for people of all ages abilities to walk and roll.

    The demonstration approach to this project allowed us to implement improvements more rapidly and efficiently than traditional project delivery would allow. Also, it allows residents and city staff to see if these interim improvements work well without the capital funding required to construct entirely new roadway elements. Feedback we receive on the East Bellevue Greenway and evaluation of the elements will inform our planning of future greenways
