Construction is wrapping up! Please join us for the Cleveland Street Celebration on Wednesday, March 25 at 7pm. We'll cut the ribbon and introduce the new Redmond Moving Arts Center. Meet on Cleveland Street between the new catenary light poles just east of 161st Ave NE. Then, enjoy an evening stroll along the street with music and samples from local restaurants.
The Cleveland Streetscape project constructs the west half of Cleveland Street between 161th Avenue NE and 164th Avenue NE to develop a vibrant and flexible “main street”.
The Cleveland Streetscape project is on track to be completed in spring 2015; the construction started in January 2014. The Cleveland Streetscape project enhances the developing community gathering place in the heart of downtown by widening sidewalks, improving the street to curbless, concrete, and preparing for eventual two-way street operation. The project is located in the heart of the historic downtown, between the future Downtown Park and the Redmond Central Connector Trail. Project features include signal improvements, sidewalks, on-street parking, street lighting, utilities, and landscaping.
Upon completion of the future Downtown Couplet Conversion project, both Redmond Way and Cleveland Street will be converted to two-way operations - anticipated early 2017. The Cleveland Streetscape and the Downtown Couplet Conversion projects are the final transportation stages in the implementation of the Downtown East/West Corridor Study (DEWCS), reinforcing downtown Redmond as an economically healthy, people-friendly place, enhanced by the movement of pedestrians, bikes, cars, and a diversity of businesses.
