From City of Redmond:
On June 30, 2010, the City of Redmond acquired the Redmond Spur of the Woodinville Subdivision of the Burlington Northern Santa Fe (BNSF) Rail Corridor, which extends approximately 3.9 miles from the junction of SR-520 and Redmond Way in Southeast Redmond to the intersection of Willows Road and NE 124th Street in the Sammamish Valley neighborhood.
The master planning process will include an integrated design that ties the north and south sides of Downtown together to develop a cultural corridor within the heart of the City. The City is committed to developing this project to the highest standards of urban design and functional engineering.
Purchased in June of 2010, these tracks will soon serve as a major north-south trail line for Redmond and the Sammamish Valley community. With the recent acquisition of a $2.3 million federal grant, the Redmond Central Corridor will receive funding for its inital one mile segment of trail. Expected to be completed by 2012, this trail segment will extend from Redmond Way and Avondale Rd. (SR-520) through downtown Redmond to the area near Redmond Way & Bear Creek Parkway.
