Upcoming Spring Construction-related Traffic Impacts
Catch Basin repairs and lane closures on 228th Ave SE: Repairs are occurring on 18 different catch basins along 228th Ave SE. The limits of this work are SE 24th St. and SE 8th St.. This work will take place on the outside north/south bound travel lanes and traffic will be reduced to one lane. The north bound east side of 228th is completed as of March 31, 2022. Steel sheets will be used to cover work until each individual catch basin repairs are complete. Work will occur between the hours of 9:30 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. and is anticipated to finish by April 8, 2022. Drivers should expect delays and use caution.
Striping Maintenance Work
The striping maintenance work was postponed due to unfavorable weather conditions. The City of Sammamish will perform the road striping maintenance work on West Beaver Lake Drive SE and East Beaver Lake Drive SE when weather conditions improve. This type of maintenance work requires dry road pavement. Fresh paint will be laid on top of the existing fog lines and center lines. The limit of work is shown in the map below.
East Lake Sammamish Trail South Segment B Stage 1 Construction
The King County East Lake Sammamish Trail (ELST) South Segment B Phase 1 continues with construction. There will be traffic impacts related to the closure of the gravel surface trail segment which causes the re-routing of cyclists and pedestrians to East Lake Sammamish Parkway (ELSP). Additionally, there will be construction traffic on ELSP.
- Project Start Point: Intersection of SE 33rd / East Lake Sammamish Shore Lane Drive SE
- Project End Point: Approximately 900' south of the intersection of SE 8th Street / East Lake Sammamish Parkway SE
Notices for construction activity outside of the City of Sammamish:
Road maintenance on 244th Ave NE near Redmond Fall City Rd, (SR-202)
This is a King County Local Services Project.
King County Road Services Division is prioritizing 244th Ave NE near SR-202 to receive snow and ice pre-treatment. Due to a slide occurring in winter 2020, both lanes of 244th Ave NE are narrowed until the impacted support wall can be repaired. The repair of the support wall is expected to begin in Summer 2023. Soil samples yielded unexpected data, which caused the design phase to be extended. King County Road Services Division has a 24/7 Road Helpline - (206) 477-8100. More information on this project can be found linked here.
