What is the future of transportation in Redmond?

The City of Redmond is updating the Transportation Master Plan (TMP), which was first adopted in 2005, to align with the City’s vision for the future as described in the Redmond 2050 Comprehensive Plan. The TMP is an important piece of the Comprehensive Plan.

This update will be developed using a strategic framework that incorporates the City's vision, feedback from the community, and an analysis of the challenges and opportunities facing Redmond into the year 2050.

  • Routes to Rails Community Involvement: Thank you to everyone who participated in the Routes to Rails campaign, focused on increasing access to light rail stations. We received 108 questionnaire responses from trail-goers who tried our pilot project, which was wayfinding signage for the Heron Rookery Trail and traffic calming measures to increase safety at the intersection of 161st Avenue NE and Bear Creek Parkway. The pilot project has concluded and the signage has been removed while staff determine the next steps for permanent signage. However, the traffic calming installation will remain in place. Stay tuned for more information on other measures that will be installed to increase access to light, thanks to your feedback.


    We’re also implementing permanent solutions to improve your walk, bike, and roll experiences at two other locations. Based on your feedback, we added a crosswalk at the intersection of 166th Ave NE and NE 79th in the Downtown Redmond station area and are reducing the speed limit on Turning Street in the Overlake station area to improve bicycle and pedestrian safety and access.

My Idea is........

about 1 year

The City provided an interactive, on-line map to solicit ideas from the community about where the City could improve transportation and mobility. Participants could suggest projects or identify places where issues existed that the TMP could address or improve. 

Participants submitted 107 ideas, assigning each idea to one or more categories. Staff have reviewed and have included these ideas in the capital project evaluation phase that is occurring in the first half of 2023.
