The Pedestrian Program creates and implements plans, policies, and projects to make a successful pedestrian system. This program funds high-priority sidewalks and shared-use paths to improve pedestrian safety and comfort. Projects leverage grants to maximize pedestrian system completion for each dollar spent by Redmond.
The City typically bundles a group of locations into one construction project. Upcoming projects from this program are listed below.
Projects in Construction
Estimated Timeline: Construction is expected to begin in September 2015 and be completed in March 2016.

NE 88th St -
Between 166th Ave NE & NE 171st Ave NE
Missing segments of sidewalk will be installed along NE 88th Street between 166th Avenue NE and NE 171st Avenue NE. The new sidewalk will be six feet wide and made of permeable concrete. The addition of sidewalk will impact stormwater collection, roadway width, and existing parking within the roadway right-of-way.
Redmond Way -
Between 142nd Ave NE & 148th Ave NE
1,900 feet of permeable concrete sidewalk will be constructed on the north side of Redmond Way. The width will generally be six feet but will be reduced to five feet in spot locations to avoid existing utility poles. The design will include building retaining walls, relocating the existing guardrail, and restriping the existing lanes on Redmond Way.
This project will be funded in part by a Washington State Department Transportation Improvement Board (TIB) grant.
NE 68th St -
West of 184th Ct NE
A six-foot wide permeable concrete sidewalk will be constructed on the north side of NE 68th Street, west of 184th Court NE where a roughly 400 foot sidewalk gap exists. The design will address utilities and effectively utilize existing curb and gutter.
NE 116th St -
At 162nd Ave NE
200 feet of permeable concrete sidewalk will be constructed to fill a gap in the existing sidewalk. The design will not impact the existing roadway channelization.
NE 29th St -
At 178th, 179th, and 180th Aves NE
ADA upgrades to the sidewalks will be installed at these corners.
Projects in Design
NE 134th St -
This project will design and construct a six-foot wide permeable concrete sidewalk on the east side of NE 134th Street. The design will address utilities, evaluate existing landscaping, and effectively utilize existing curb and gutter when applicable.
Between 75th Ave NE & 80th Ave NE
For this project, the City has applied for Safe Routes to School grant funding. If awarded grant funds, this segment may be bid as a separate project. Currently, this project is only funded for design. Construction will occur if funding is acquired.
