Construction is complete! At the March 25 Cleveland Street Celebration, the Mayor and Council cut the ribbon and introduced the new Redmond Moving Arts Center, both an art piece and a platform for creative exploration. Attendees enjoyed an evening stroll along the street with music and samples from local restaurants.
The Cleveland Streetscape project creates a vibrant and flexible “main street” along the west half of Cleveland Street between 161th Avenue NE and 164th Avenue NE. It enhances the 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 (anticipated in 2017), 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.
