As part of the Bellevue'’s response to the COVID-19 crisis, the Transportation Department has implemented a 'Healthy Streets' pilot project. Designated residential streets are being temporarily closed to non-local vehicle traffic to provide more room for people in the neighborhoods to safely move while socially distancing during COVID-19. The temporary street closures make it easier for people nearby to bicycle, walk and roll for recreation and to reach essential services. Closures are marked with signs, and there is enough space for local traffic to drive around the signs. City staff is monitoring the streets daily to ensure the signage remains in place.
