Northup Way Connection

Project update

The project was completed in November 2017,   

Northup Way connection to SR 520 Trail

Northup Way is a major east-west corridor in north Bellevue, yet it had no pedestrian or bicycle route between 108th Avenue Northeast and image of pedestrian bridge installationNortheast 24th Street.

The state Department of Transportation and the City of Bellevue partnered to make long-envisioned improvements on the segment.

The new bike lanes link to the recently completed SR 520 regional trail to the west and an existing trail off Northeast 24th Street to the east. The City of Bellevue was the lead agency for the project.

Project improvements include bike lanes and sidewalk on both sides of Northup Way, between NE 33rd Street and NE 24th Street. Other features are: a pedestrian and bicycle bridge over the Eastside Rail Corridor, two mid-block pedestrian crossings, green bike lanes in select areas, street lighting, landscaping and irrigation. 


Construction began in early 2016 and was completed in November 2017. 


The project cost was approximately $13.2 million, with $8 million funded by WSDOT and $2.2 million by a Transportation Alternatives Program (TAP) grant.
