Transportation Facilities Plan
Receive text or email notification concerning updates on this project
The Transportation Facilities Plan (TFP) serves as the city’s 12-year, or intermediate-range, transportation planning document. It includes high-priority projects from long-range plans (such as the Downtown Transportation Plan Update, Transit Master Plan and Ped-Bike Plan) and projects that address emerging needs and opportunities.
Plan update now underway
In November 2014, the city started the process to update the TFP. Staff are working with the Transportation Commission to identify candidate projects, establish criteria for project evaluation/prioritization and develop a prioritized list of recommended projects.
Public Input Opportunities
The city is hosting three community outreach events in March to gather public input on projects and priorities for the 2016-2027 TFP update. All of the events are "drop-in" format, with no formal presentation:
- March 12, Bellevue City Hall, Rm. 1E-108, 4:30-6:30p.m., prior to the Transportation Commission meeting;
- March 17, Crossroads Mall, 5:00-7:00p.m.; and
- March 19, Marketplace at Factoria, 11:30a.m.-1:30p.m.
Please check this site in March for a map of the TFP candidate projects and the opportunity to comment on the proposed projects via an online survey.
Questions or comments relating to the TFP update may be directed to Michael Ingram or Kristi Oosterveen at TransportationTFP@bellevuewa.gov.
It is anticipated that the list of prioritized projects will be developed by May 2015. The overall process is planned to result in the adoption of a 2016-2027 TFP in December 2015. The TFP update process is expected to contribute to the development of the 2017-2023 CIP update.

Typically updated every two to three years, the Transportation Facilities Plan is a "financially constrained" plan: some projects do not have sufficient financial resources committed to be fully completed by 2027, but the identified cost of the projects as described in the TFP must be balanced with the City’s transportation revenue projections for the 12-year plan period.
The Transportation Facilities Plan serves several functions:
It provides the first level of project prioritization necessary to identify projects for funding in the adopted, seven-year Capital Investment Program (CIP) Plan.
It serves as the basis for the city’s Impact Fee Program. The roadway and intersection capacity projects adopted in the TFP are used to calculate the impact fees charged to new land use developments. The fees cover a portion of the costs for transportation system capacity needed to serve the demand generated by new developments.
An environmental review is conducted in conjunction with each TFP update. The environmental review considers potential, cumulative impacts to the citywide transportation system and other elements of the environment that may occur due to 12 years of projected land use growth and the implementation of the projects identified in the TFP.
