From new connections opening to curating public art, Eastrail Partners is excited to look back on another busy year on the Eastrail corridor!

Major Trail Connections Completed

With the opening of both the Totem Lake Connector in Kirkland and the Northup Connector in Bellevue, Eastrail users can now safely navigate challenging intersections and connect to major business centers directly from the Eastrail.

Art and Performance on the Trail

Eastrail Partners continues to further its mission to make the Eastrail for everyone, every day. In 2023, we were excited to partner with community to bring cross-cultural public artyouth theatre, and a concert series directly to the trail. 

Celebrating Trail Users

We loved seeing and connecting with all of you on the Eastrail this year! Whether it’s hosting tables for Bike Everywhere Day, unveiling a new interactive trail map, or leading informative rides and walks, we’re always looking for new ways to make the Eastrail even better for those who walk, roll, and stroll. For those looking to get out more this winter, be sure to check out these great tips we compiled from those in our community. 

Continued Advocacy for Eastrail Projects

As we celebrated the future trail segments coming to Woodinville, we look forward to continuing to advocate for public and private funding to complete the 42-mile Eastrail. 

Looking Ahead

2024 is set to be another big year for Eastrail! The NE 8th overcrossing in Bellevue opens next spring, as the East Link Extension brings light rail to the Eastside. Construction continues on the Redmond Central Connector and the I-405 Overcrossing in Bellevue, while the Wilburton Trestle is set to break ground. Eastrail Partners looks forward to our continued collaboration with our partners to fully fund the existing gaps in Bellevue, Renton, Woodinville, and Snohomish County. 

Our work depends on support from our community. Please make a donation to make the Eastrail for everyone, every day.
