The City of Bellevue maintains 1,072 lane-miles of roadway through its Street Overlay program. Every two years the City conducts a pavement distress survey to determine where maintenance is most needed and develop an overlay plan. This maintenance includes street overlays, pavement rehabilitation, curb, sidewalk repair and appropriate Americans with Disabilities (ADA) retrofit work. Pavement overlay projects also include pavement markings and vehicle detection for traffic signals. Some pavement overlay sites restore the surface of the roadway after installation of new water mains or sewer improvements.
The Overlay Program also regularly provides for the inspection and maintenance of the 20 bridges within Bellevue’s jurisdiction that carry traffic or cross over city roadways. The federally required condition inspections are reported to the Washington State Department of Transportation to meet the recordkeeping requirements for structures in Bellevue’s Bridge Inventory.
Locations to be resurfaced in 2015 include:
- Highland Drive from Southeast 46th Street to Forest Drive Southeast
- Southeast 63rd St from 151st Avenue Southeast to Forest Drive Southeast
- “Woodridge route” from the intersection of Southeast Eighth Street and 121st Avenue Southeast to the intersection of 128th Avenue Southeast and Southeast 32nd Street
