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.

  • 2023 Routes to Rails

    Thank you for sharing your feedback. This conversation has been closed.

    Light rail is coming to Redmond, with four new stations planned in the next two years: Overlake Village and Redmond Technology stations through East Link and Marymoor Village and Downtown Redmond stations through the Downtown Redmond Link Extension. These stations will connect Redmond to the greater regional transit network and other Eastside destinations, but more importantly, they will provide seamless connections between four Redmond neighborhoods.

    To prepare for the light rail opening, the City wants to understand how you will travel to and from the stations.

    • What could the City of Redmond do to help you leave your car at home and walk, roll, or bike in these station areas?
    • If you already walk, roll, or bike in these communities, what would improve your experience?


    Based on your input, the City will implement a community-selected pilot project in early summer 2023 that improves access to one of the future stations. A pilot project could be anything from a new crosswalk to a trail connection to a protected bike lane to a new parklet.


    Share your feedback with us through March 15. Tell us where you have had challenges in the future station areas, such as feeling unsafe at intersections or experiencing missing sidewalks, as well as which community destinations are most important to you.
