Redmond Central Connector

The Redmond Central Connector uses a former railroad line route to link Sammamish, Redmond, and Kirkland and connect Redmond Town Center, historic Downtown, Grass Lawn neighborhood, and Willows business district. The first mile of the new Redmond Central Connector was completed in 2013 in downtown Redmond, linking the Bear Creek Trail by SR 202 and Redmond Way to the Sammamish River Trail.

Another 1.3 mile section is schedule for 2016, and phase 3 in the near future after that.

The Redmond Central Connector is built on a 3.9 mile stretch of former Burlington Northern Santa Fe rail line that linked Redmond to the 42-mile Eastside Rail Corridor that historically moved freight from Renton to Snohomish, along the east side of Lake Washington. While most of the 42-mile trail corridor is still in an initial planning stage, two sections are now complete (as of February 2015): 1 mile of the Redmond Central Connector and 5.75 miles of the Cross Kirkland Corridor.
