City role: direct
|The percent of each modal corridor (automobile, bicycle, pedestrian, transit, truck) that is considered complete, by length.
Automobile and truck. Network completion for automobiles increased to 62 percent in 2015, while truck network completion increased to 66 percent. Segments of the automobile and truck networks are considered “complete” if they are in their final configuration, and do not have a reconfiguration project identified for them in the TFP or the Buildout Plan, which is the City’s long-term list of planned transportation improvements.
Bicycle. Bicycle network completion remained at 39 percent in 2015. Segments of the bicycle modal corridor network are considered “complete” if they are served by a trail or another type of physically separated bikeway, such as a cycle track. Bicycle lanes are not considered physically separated bikeways.
Pedestrian. In 2015 pedestrian network completion increased slightly to 26 percent in Redmond’s pedestrian priority zones, and increased to 78 percent in other neighborhoods. Pedestrian network completion is reported as 1) the percent of connections within Redmond’s pedestrian priority zones (Downtown and Overlake urban centers, together with the area within one-half mile of a light rail station areas) that achieve a high level of pedestrian-oriented design, including increased width and landscaping; and 2) the percent of the transportation network in Redmond’s neighborhoods that has some pedestrian facility present.
Transit. Transit network completion remained at 59 percent in 2015, which is a decrease from 2013 when Metro service cuts were implemented. Segments of the transit network are considered complete if they carry transit service that meets the City’s standards for that corridor. On “high frequency” corridors, that standard is 15-minute headways (the time between vehicles) between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m. On “regular” corridors, that standard is 30-minute headways during the same period.
