This Project Page features a rolling three week look-ahead keeping you up-to-date on the projects progress. For more information on the project click here.

Issaquah Fall City Road - Detour Route. Starting on Monday, April 20th, the roadway closure will be between 245th Lane SE and Klahanie Blvd.

What and Where:

This project will widen Issaquah Fall City Road to four lanes, between 242nd Ave SE and Klahanie Dr SE. The additional lanes along with roundabouts at 242nd, 247th, and Klahanie Drive will improve traffic flow and reduce commute times on this highly-congested roadway.


When:

Road Closure: April 13, 2020 to April 16, 2021 (between 247th and Klahanie Dr SE).

Estimated End of Construction: August 2021


Work Hours:

While the school closures are in place due to COVID-19, construction hours have been extended from 7 am - 5:00 pm

Monday - Friday: 9:30 am - 3:30 pm

During road closure M-F: 7 am - 8 pm (between 247th and Klahanie Dr SE)

Optional Saturday work: 9 am - 6 pm



Why:

SE Issaquah-Fall City Road is a vital connection route to residents of the City of Sammamish and surrounding communities. This project will double the existing two-lane section, to a four-lane section, and promotes the City’s goal of complete streets by including bike lanes, sidewalks, landscaping, and a protected student crossing at Pacific Cascade Middle School. A bridge located between 247th and Klahanie Drive will raise the roadway to improve safety and meet federal driver stopping sight distance requirements. North Fork Issaquah Creek will be removed from a culvert underneath the roadway into a stream channel spanned by the bridge.

    Below is your three week look-ahead from 4/2 - 4/23:

    Update as of 4/9

    Issaquah-Fall City Road remains closed for construction between 247th PL SE and Klahanie DR SE. Local access will continue to be maintained between 240th and 247th during the closure. The closure between 247th Place SE and Klahanie Dr. SE will remain until April 16, 2021.

    *Safety Reminder – Please observe the contractor’s “Sidewalk Closed” and “No Trespassing” signs at all times.

    • By end of shift Friday, April 9th, the contractor will have removed barrels from the roadway between 240th and 247th. The public will have full use of the roadway (both lanes in both directions) during off-hour times. During work hours the public will encounter short term (day time) lane closures as necessary to complete punchlist work. The significant item of work to be completed after this week is sidewalk in front of the Issaquah Montessori; this is waiting for Utility Companies work to raise their vault lids.
    • By end of shift Friday April 16th, the roadway will open up to the public between 247th PL SE and Klahanie. During work hours the public will encounter short term (day time) lane closures as necessary to complete punchlist work. One of the significant items of work to occur after the opening of the roadway will be third party utilities taking a lane to finish installation of their vaults, lids, and make their necessary connections.
    • By May 1st, all punchlist work is schedule to be completed and traffic control will not be on the road until the contractor returns in June to begin the excavation for the stream mitigation work. We anticipate the third party utilities will be competed with this work by May 1, though this date is subject to change.
