Beginning as early as Monday, July 24, vegetation removal will begin along the Eastside Rail Corridor in between Northeast 8th and Northeast 12th streets (see map) in central Bellevue. Crews will remove vegetation that is located within the corridor in order to establish work zones and build the light rail project. Replanting will take place near the end of construction as part of a restoration and landscaping effort.
