On Nov. 8, 2016, Bellevue voters endorsed a transportation-focused Neighborhood Safety, Connectivity and Congestion levy (Proposition 2). The measure was approved by 54.13 percent of Bellevue voters (31,407).

In 2017, the levy rate was about 15 cents per $1,000 of assessed property value, or approximately $7.4 million total raised for the year. The rate and total amount can vary slightly from year to year, depending on the overall assessed value of property in Bellevue and growth due to new construction. In addition to construction work, revenue from the levy pays for related project costs such as planning, design, and public outreach.  

The vote followed a public outreach effort that included three open houses in different parts of the city and discussion at several City Council meetings.
