    With the increased traffic through Klahanie due to the Issaquah-Fall City road project, speeds have increased and it has become dangerous to at the unmarked intersections. The minor increase of police traffic patrols have done little to help. When is the city going to install better signs, flags, and lights at the unmarked intersections/crosswalks to improve pedestrian safety?

    Bruce Lee asked 3 months ago

    Thank you for contacting the City to raise your concerns with regards to traffic speeds along SE Klahanie Blvd.

    There are currently two school zone flashers, one speed radar sign in the eastbound direction, and four sets of crosswalk flashers between Issaquah-Pine Lake Rd and 256th Ave SE and four sets of crosswalk flashers and a speed radar sign in the westbound direction between 256th Ave SE and IFCR in total along SE Klahanie Blvd (see map below). There are also a couple of curb extensions at 244th Pl intersection and in front of the Klahanie Park crosswalk that were installed to help mitigate traffic impacts to Klahanie as a result of the temporary closure of Issaquah-Fall City Road.

    Although we believe there are an adequate number of signs and other traffic calming features along Klahanie Blvd, we could consider additional measures if speed study results justify them. We will conduct a speed study to compare current speeds along SE Klahanie Blvd with the results from last spring and can share the results. Additionally, we will help coordinate with the Police Department to conduct additional enforcement in the area regardless of the speed study results.

    We know that the Klahanie neighborhood has seen an increase in traffic with the closure of IFCR. We (including the Police Department) are monitoring the situation and believe the traffic on Klahanie Blvd will lessen once the road is reopened. Please let Isabel Diaz, Acting Traffic Engineering Manager know if you would like to meet with her along with our Traffic Police Officer to discuss the data and your concerns. She can be reached at idiaz@sammamish.us.

    Hi, I'm curious as to what sort of timeline there is for swings to be reinstalled in the parks? We have to travel to parks within Issaquah or Bellevue boundaries in order to find swing sets that haven't had their swings removed, and we moms of tiny kids would really appreciate being able to get back to enjoying the outdoors before the rain returns. I know it's COVID-related but the discrepancy between neighboring cities and their uses of caution tape for outdoor playgrounds is confusing. I am perfectly happy to be responsible for the health of my family and bring sanitizing wipes if I am concerned that there is a hotbed of COVID lurking on playground equipment... thank you for considering a timeline for reinstallation- on behalf of a LOT of moms.

    mckenziehawley asked 2 months ago

    Thank you for your inquiry.  

    We are aware that neighboring cities have started opening additional park amenities. Staff is currently reviewing new information coming out of Governor Inslee’s office regarding the latest guidelines for the Safe Start program. The information will be reviewed by our City Manager, Emergency Manager and the City Council and a determination will be made as to the next steps to the phased opening of the remaining parks and amenities. We will pass along your feedback and also encourage you to provide public comment at the next Council meeting scheduled for October 6th.

    Have a nice day!

    Hello. I'm curious why the 4th Street sculpture doesn't have some sort of vector (address) or intersection information in various posts? "Name the sculpture" contest should follow the "Be the First to Post Its Location" contest. I know what it's like to be so into something that one might assume "everyone knows this," but there are least two of us who are absorbed by other significant and equally weighty matters, but might enjoy a foray to see a sculpture, but not enjoy a search. ;) The photos make it appear interesting.

    Bob M asked 2 months ago

    Hello and thank you for your question! The new SE 4th Street Sculpture is located at the SE 4th Street and 225th Pl SE roundabout. We have also included the location on the project page for future reference. Thank you and have a nice day!

    Can you please put up a sign for 230th Lane SE? For both directions on Issaquah-Pine Lake Rd SE. This is @ the intersection of Pine Lake Middle School. Thanks.

    Phil asked 3 months ago

    Hello and thank you for your question. The City does not install street signs on traffic signal mast arms for private roads, with the exception of major schools. For additional questions regarding traffic signs, please contact the Traffic Engineering Division.

    It seems that as SE 4th street is being finished it’s extremely narrow. Will there be any bike lanes?

    krcx asked 7 months ago

    Hello and thank you for the question.  We believe that this question was meant for the TMP project page, so we will move it to that page.  However, the answer is also posted below: 

    Bike lanes on SE 4th Street are part of the project.  It does seem quite narrow right now.  There will be more space once all of the pavement is placed and is level with the curbs.  The roadway is the City's standard width, however the raised center median gives the perception of narrowing the roadway and is a tactic used by traffic engineers to encourage driver attention and proper travel speeds.

    Will the city open Beaver lake boat ramp and Pine Lake boat ramp on May 5, 2021 so that fishing can occur in accordance with the Governors orders?

    DWD asked 7 months ago

    Hello and thank you for the question. We believe this question was meant for the COVID-19 Information and Resources page, so we will move it to that page. However the answer is also posted below: 

    Though many State-run parks in Washington will re-open tomorrow, May 5, City Parks will continue to have modified levels of public access. Because our Parks generally have a smaller capacity than State Parks.

    With all the kids being home-school during this crazy time, I think they should be celebrated and given a forum to show their skills. Maybe we could start an Sammamish Kids online Art Show to display and maybe compete for all their home art projects. Just an idea🤷‍♀️ Is it possible for the Art Commission to help me out to put up a Page dedicated to our kids digital art projects?

    Kathie Beutel asked 9 months ago

    Hello and thank you for your suggestion!  We love this idea and are currently working to make it happen.  Once we have a live page on Connect Sammamish, we will announce it via our social media channels (Facebook, Twitter), so please keep an eye out for that.  We anticipate this being live by the early part of next week!

    When a major connector road (e.g. Issaquah Fall City Rd) is going to be shut down for a significant period of time (9+ months) the city needs to work with the schools and private businesses that will be most definitely effected by this detour to find solutions to moving a significant number of people through that same traffic pattern during the day. Is there anything the city is willing to do to reduce the number of cars going through the detour (i.e., provide a shuttle from one side of the closure to the other)? It just seems that funneling all of that traffic through a significant detour around it is going to cause major delays everywhere! A longer project with less overall impact would be a better option. We would love to hear how the city is working to provide options to commuters impacted by this impending road closure.

    Hello and thank you for the question.  We believe that this question was meant for the TMP project page, so we will move it to that page.  However, the answer is also posted below:

    While the closure of Issaquah-Fall City Road is impactful, it is unavoidable.  The City of Sammamish is committed to making it as short as possible.  The City has been working with residents and community organizations to communicate the closure well in advance to allow residents the ability to make alternative plans for the closure.  The City, however, is very limited in what it can provide in terms of alternative transportation, as it is not a transit agency.  Similarly, King County Metro does not typically provide mitigation for construction projects.  While Metro has added bus service to critical routes when something like the Seattle Viaduct closure happens, they have not ventured into areas where there are no current bus routes.  An option for certain local trips is Sammamish Community Ride, an alternative transit service that began in June of this year.  See: https://www.kingcounty.gov/depts/transportation/news/2019/20190618-Sammamish-Community-Ride.aspx

    Please can there be a narrow walking path between Ebright Park and Big Rock Park along 8th and 216th also. Currently you feel like you must dive into the ditch when a car comes along. There will be more traffic on these roads once the road at the top of the hill is completed. Yet there are many blind spots on 216th and still no shoulder !!! Please for the safety of all and the use of our parks provide narrow walking shoulders (even gravel will do.)

    The 216th/217th/218th Corridor will be the subject of a study that is currently underway.  Safety concerns will be evaluated under this study.  Furthermore, there is a project identified in the TMP preliminary projects list that addresses safety for all modes of transportation along this corridor, including pedestrians.  The description of this project is as follows, “Widen the road to 3 lanes with a median/two-way left turn lane, bike lanes, curb, gutter and sidewalk from 212th Avenue SE to SE 4th Street.”  To show support for a particular project, it is recommended that you continue to engage with us on the TMP and, in particular, come to one of the public workshops being held in August.  At these workshops, the community will get a chance to discuss potential projects in Sammamish and vote on which ones they support the City investing in.
