What does the improved Eastside corridor look like?

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.
