Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link


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.

Scroll down or click here for current updates!

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 13th, 2020 to December 2020 (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 for Issaquah Fall City Road Phase 1 for 2/11/20:


    2/11/20

    The Contractor for the Issaquah-Fall City Road project is taking advantage of the break in the weather to construct the roundabout at the intersection of Issaquah Beaver Lake Road and 256th Ave SE beginning today, Tuesday, February 11.

    The work has been planned and signed for a while, but the weather has delayed work up to this point. The contractor will be placing the paint striping and signage, and using orange barrels and cones until the final concrete curbs are installed over the existing asphalt roadway. The concrete work can occur with light rains and is planned to be completed by this weekend.

    The contractor will be working in the roadway between the hours of 9:30 am and 3:00 pm to account for school traffic at the neighboring middle school. Please expect flaggers during the hours of construction. Until the roundabout is complete, please follow the posted stop signs that have been used while the flooding of Issaquah-Fall City Road has occurred.

    We know there's been a lot of change at this intersection over the last week, and we thank you for using care and patience as you drive. Challenger Elementary and Beaver Lake Middle are walking schools, so please be mindful of children in the area. This roundabout will be a change for them too, so please be aware that the children might not be as aware of their surroundings as they usually are.

    If you have any questions please, contact the project manager, Sam Park, at 425-295-0538.
