The City recently released a new, spatially accurate real-time traffic map to provide residents and visitors with another way to make informed travel decisions. The map, based in Google Maps, overlays 75 traffic cameras through the City and capitalizes on the familiar color-coded traffic conditions (black/red-red-yellow-green) used in Google Maps to depict congestion levels.
The map features convenient views that focus on the entire City or some of the most traveled parts of town such as downtown, Factoria/Eastgate, and Crossroads. Additionally, through the use of layers, users can quickly link to other adjacent Eastside and regional traffic maps including Issaquah, King County, Redmond, Seattle, and WSDOT.
- Construction on West Lake Sammamish Parkway began earlier this year resulting in increased congestion during certain times of the day.
- In May, the Utilities Department will begin work on replacing the Coal Creek Culvert which will reduce travel lanes down to one in each direction.
Checking the map before you leave home or work will help you to plan a more time-efficient trip, especially as projects transition from design to construction.
To learn more about projects that are sprouting in Bellevue, come to the April 24 Spring Forward Expo where 60+ projects will be on-hand to share information and gather public feedback. The event will be at Bellevue City Hall from 4-7 p.m.
You can access the map from the front-page of the City of Bellevue website.
