If you are going north on 164th and stop at the lights at Redmond way (northbound) the lane seems wide enough to accomodate a left turn bay in addition to a "straight only" lane. Currently there is no advance green light so cars can get stuck behind one while waiting to turn left. Painting in a left turn lane and altering the traffic lights accordingly to keep them to the side while allowing through traffic to pass would ...more »
How does the city get more involvement from its diverse citizen population? What is currently being done and what more can we do?
Not too romantic when the electricity goes out while you are entertaining clients and/or have to explain on your first encounter with your mail-order bride,"No, I swear this isn't a third-world country, this is Redmond, home to Microsoft... ." Seriously though, Redmond City needs to invest into a team, full-time, just to cut back the tree limbs on ALL wires that may be vulnerable to wind...any breeze. The city has beautiful ...more »

As a regular bike commuter, I encounter several severely distracted drivers along the Avondale Way corridor as well as on Novelty Hill road on a daily basis, particularly on my commute home.

A person may be left feeling ...more »

I posted this comment a year ago and never saw a response: Please add a sign explaining exactly what the new right turn signal means, as it can be confusing. If the signal is red, is it still okay to turn right after stopping? If all the other lights are green but the right turn signal is red, do turning drivers need to stop? Often the right turn signal is red even when no one is in the crosswalk, so why would drivers ...more »
Can the city do a press release and fill us in on the latest construction status along Bear Creek....even if it's only an interim update for curious citizens? Maybe a short video on Channel 21 also?
Link to on-line article dedicated to Steve Harris:
I hope that if your department has a memorial for Harris, you will publish the details of the event on your web page. Many of us were so touched by our friendship with him.
