Greater Southeast Redmond
Two studies and a preliminary design are the main components of the Greater Southeast Redmond Area Transportation Study. The purpose of the study is to identify existing and predicted issues that will enable the City to deliver a sustainable transportation plan that accommodates all modes of travel.

A brief description of these three components follows:
- Freight mobility study, with a primary focus on Southeast Redmond, identifies issues, types, and the needs of freight and goods movement throughout the City and addresses how the current and future transportation facilities are affected. (See Transportation Master Plan Chapter 5.)
- Southeast Redmond Transportation Study identifies and defines a set of planned improvements for the Southeast Redmond neighborhood that addresses safety, congestion relief, connectivity and mobility for all travel modes, and sustainability.
- NE 76 Street preliminary corridor design (from Redmond Way to 192 Avenue NE) determines the ultimate street cross section, right-of-way (ROW) limits, and geometry. NE 76 Street is the main east-west corridor through the Southeast Redmond neighborhood.
It is expected that the findings and recommendations from the freight and goods activity study will be used as input into the Greater Southeast Redmond Area Transportation Study, and that the findings and recommendations from the Southeast Redmond Transportation Study will provide a context for the preliminary design of NE 76 Street.
Regional and commercial traffic place a high demand on the transportation system in Southeast Redmond. Future major development in that area will only increase the demand on already congested roads.
