That new bicycle path in Bellevue

Facebook Twitter More...

A few days ago I posted a story about a short bicycle path opened in Bellevue that avoids some busy roads and intersections in the Factoria shopping district.

Here's a video the City of Bellevue posted online about the bike path.

One interesting note about this route is how the city used state and federal funds to help pay the $1.4 million cost of the short route.

A state Pedestrian and Bicycle Safety grant covered $605,000 of the cost, and a federal Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality grant accounted for $354,400.

It's good to know that these grants are available and that city staff knows how to find them.
