Redmond, WA – Walking and biking in Redmond is now safer with the completion of two Safe Routes to School projects. New sidewalks along 134th Avenue and Red-Wood Road improve pedestrian safety, and a new bike lane along Red-Wood Road completes a long-awaited non-motorized route.

The 134th Avenue sidewalk safely separates children walking to school from traffic, and it includes a new crosswalk with flashing beacons at 80th Street. The Red-Wood Road route connects Norman Rockwell and Meadow Park to the west side of Red-Wood Road south of 109th Street and makes it easier to walk or bike around the neighborhood.

“These Safe Route improvements provide important connections for the neighborhood, enabling more children to walk and bicycle to school, stated Mayor John Marchione. “This route provides better bike access for the community to Norman Rockwell Elementary and Metro bus route 931.”

Redmond would like to thank our funding partners including, the Federal Highway Administration, Washington State Department of Transportation, and the Washington State Transportation Improvement Board. Thank you for your patience during construction.
