Exciting improvements in the works
Visitor moorage opens, the first phase of the Maydenbauer Bay Park development is underway and the lake sewer line replacement project has been postponed, .
Visitor moorage at the Bellevue Marina on Meydenbauer Bay is now open to the boating public. Access, moorage and restrooms meet ADA accessibility guidelines. Design of the facility was funded by Washington State's Recreation and Conservation Office (RCO). Visitor moorage for 14 boats is located between Piers 2 and 3 in the Bellevue Marina. Allowable length of stay is four hours. Visitor moorage opens daily at 8 a.m., and boats must depart by 9 p.m. Visitor moorage rules
The Bellevue Marina piers are signed to guide visiting boaters to the public visitor moorage. On-site signage includes information to help ensure boaters, park users and neighbors are accommodated politely and safely. Park Patrol staff and the Harbormaster will be on site this summer during busy hours to greet boaters and collect information that will help inform future facility management.
Look for the turquoise sign and piers labeled Visitor Moorage. Piers 1, 2 and 3 are reserved for leased moorage tenants. You can find more information about leased moorage at the Bellevue Marina web page.
Meydenbauer Bay Park Development - Phase 1
Meydenbauer Bay Park Phase 1 is underway. The consultant team, led by Anchor QEA, LLC, is reviewing available data, identifying data gaps and scheduling archeological and geotechnical surveys in preparation for design work. The city contracted with Centennial Contractors Enterprises, Inc., to demolish four of the remaining rental houses along Lake Washington Boulevard NE. Centennial mobilized on site June 23, 2014 to begin the demolition. The four houses have been demolished, and Centennial is in the process of removing debris, concrete and underground oil tanks. After soil testing and removal of any contaminated soil from the old underground oil tanks, the contractor will grade the area to make sure it drains and will hydroseed to prevent erosion.
Removing the houses opens the view to the lake.
Next Steps / Schedule
- A boundary and topographical survey will follow in order to create a detailed and comprehensive project map with accurate contours, natural resources and built structures.
- With the completed project map, the consultant team will begin the detailed design process, likely beginning in September.
- Early in the design process the city will re-engage with neighbors and stakeholders to introduce the design team, share ideas, answer questions and gather feedback.
Sewer Lake Line Replacement
The Utilities Department's sewer lake line replacement project, previously scheduled to begin in May 2014, has been postponed to coordinate the construction with the most current development plans of Meydenbauer Bay Park Phase 1.
