Construction of major private developments and the public transportation projects are currently in full effect. The construction sector in Bellevue has continued growing, even while the economy has been hit hard but the pandemic.
According to the City of Bellevue, the progress also has its challenges. These include; closed streets and sidewalks, detours, and noise. The work is expected to intensify before it calms down. The City of Bellevue is making efforts to keep the community safe and minimize negative impacts.
Nearby property managers are notified in advance about impacts like noise, and when it is possible, work that closes roads or affects underground utilities is scheduled during the day.
Some of the biggest impacts in Downtown Bellevue are as follows in the coming weeks:
Bellevue Plaza Office Tower (west of 106th Avenue Northeast, near Northeast Second Street): On September 28th, there will be large concrete pours during the day, causing noise and impacting street access. From September 18 through the 20, the installation of a tower crane will impact street access.
108th Avenue Northeast Complete Streets project: The last day of construction is September 17 for pavement grinding and overlay. 108th Avenue is closed from Main Street to Northeast Fourth Street. This project is meant to improve safety for people who walk, bicycle, and drive.
Avenue Bellevue mixed-use development (10300 Northeast Eighth Street): The work will include a concrete pour in early October, and then a tower crane installation from October 9 through 11.
