The Utilities Department maintains and repairs streets, sidewalks, walkways and trails in the right of way.
To report the following, please e-mail Utilities. (If your concern needs prompt attention, please call the 24-hour emergency response line at 425-452-7840):
- Potholes (response is usually within 24 hours)
- Hazardous road conditions, such as down trees, snow and ice, etc.
- Down or damaged stop or yield signs

- Sidewalk concerns
Bellevue's 942 miles of roadway are swept on the following schedule:
- Signed bike lanes - twice a month
- Main arterials - once a month
- Residential streets - three to four times a year.
After snow and ice events, sweepers are temporarily taken off regular routes to remove traction sand from roads.
The city cleans sidewalks next to main arterials once a year. Residents are asked to maintain sidewalks adjacent to their properties.
It is illegal to cut down a tree in the right of way. If a tree falls in the right of way or in the street, call Utilities. If a tree falls on your property, call a tree removal company. If you have yard debris service with Republic Services (Allied Waste), they will pick up branches less than four inches in diameter and under four feet in length. Please put in your green yard debris container or bundle and tie with natural twine or rope and place at the curb on your regular pickup day. Do not put branches in the street. For larger branches, call a tree company.
