A section of NE 8th Street has been closed on occasion in late April, and early May due to the implementation of the new Sky bridge that will soon connect pedestrians to and from Bellevue Place and Lincoln Square on their respected second floors. The bridge will connect on the second floor of the Hyatt where retail shops and restaurants currently occupy. Lincoln Square’s entrance will be located next to Thomasville Home Furnishings making it much more convenient for shoppers traveling between these buildings.
This will be second Sky Bridge for the Bellevue Collection properties. The first was built to connect the Lincoln Square and the Bellevue Square properties in August 2005 to make it more accessible for shoppers to commute by foot to both locations.
This is the second of what is speculated by the city of Bellevue as two of the possibly eight bridges which might be built in Bellevue.
