Key features of the Eastside Transit and HOV Project
The Eastside Transit and HOV Project completes and improves the 2.3-mile HOV system from Evergreen Point Road in Medina to 108th Avenue Northeast in Bellevue.
The reconstructed corridor, expanded to six lanes, now has two general-purpose lanes and one transit/HOV lane in each direction.
Key features include:
- A transit/HOV lane through all but a small segment of the Eastside corridor.
- Median transit stops at Evergreen Point Road and 92nd Avenue NE that are ADA accessible.
- Wider, safer shoulders.
- Direct-access ramps at 108th Avenue NE for carpools and transit.
- A regional bicycle and pedestrian path.
