Work on Overlake Phase II updates and implementation steps continues and includes various items such as the 152nd Avenue NE Corridor Study, NE 40th Street Corridor Study, Overlake Village Stormwater and Park Facilities Conceptual Design and updates to the Bellevue-Redmond Overlake Transportation Study (BROTS) Agreement.
The Overlake Wayfinding Study expanded a successful program from the Downtown to Overlake. The study goals include:
- Enhance Overlake’s pedestrian and bicycle environments
- Improve linkages to Overlake from other areas
- Make information available to visitors
Fabrication and installation of the signs was completed in December 2009 – look for signs like this in 20 locations throughout the neighborhood!
The NE 40th Street Corridor Study began in March 2009. This street is a significant east-west corridor in the Overlake Neighborhood and the goals of this project include:
- Improve the corridor for non-motorized modes by identifying improvements both along and across NE 40th Street
- Identify improvements for all modes at the SR 520 interchange to improve safety
- Enhance corridor aesthetics by identifying a corridor design theme, including landscape concepts
The executive summary of the draft report, including recommended quick action, short- and long-term improvements for each segment of the corridor, is available on the project website. Adoption of a final recommendation is anticipated in spring 2010For more information:

In early May 2009, the City Council approved the hiring of Otak Inc and the Berger Partnership consulting firms, to work on the Overlake Village Stormwater and Parks Facilities Conceptual Design.
The Overlake Neighborhood Plan specifies that stormwater management will be handled on a regional basis, rather than a site-by-site basis in Overlake Village. This project, which is anticipated to wrap up in spring 2010, will result in preliminary design and policy implementation strategies for one to three co-located regional stormwater and park facilities in Overlake Village, along with concepts for incorporating low impact development throughout the neighborhood.
The Implementation Plan and Preferred Alternative will be presented to the Parks and Trails Commission, Planning Commission and the community at a third meeting in April.

On December 15, 2009, the City Council hired HDR, Inc., a transportation consultant, to work on the 152nd Avenue NE Corridor Study. The primary focus area of this study is the vicinity of Sound Transit's proposed East Link light rail along NE 24th Street and 152nd Avenue NE north of NE 24th Street. However, the entire length of 152nd Avenue NE from NE 20th Street north to NE 31st Street will be considered.
A public open house to present the preferred alternative is anticipated in spring 2010.
