The purpose of the Eastgate/I-90 project is to enhance the corridor and create an attractive employment area that also provides neighborhood services and serves as a vibrant and significant contributor to Bellevue's economic health in the coming decades. The major focus of the project is the commercial, industrial and office areas fronting I-90 between I-405 and the Bellevue city limits. This area is one of the city's major employment centers, containing approximately 18 percent of the city's total employment. A project summary outlines the vision and land use concept for the corridor.
Implementation of the project is underway and in the final phase. Policy and land use changes were included in the Comprehensive Plan update, in the Volume 2 Subarea Plan amendments. Transportation implementation has been included in the Transit Master Plan and also includes design and construction of the Mountains to Sound Greenway Trail. The last step to implementation is to prepare amendments to Bellevue's Land Use Code, which is already underway and expected to be completed in 2016.
The Eastgate/I-90 Citizen Advisory Committee Land Use and Transportation Plan Final Report is the original 2012 study and plan. The adopted Comprehensive Plan amendments and proposed Land Use Code amendments are based on this plan, as is all of the implementation taken to date.
