Ebright Creek Fish Passage Project Construction starting in June
Beginning in June this project will start construction to restore the Ebright Creek crossing at East Lake Sammamish Parkway. The project will remove the existing culvert pipes and replace them with a fully fish passable box culvert, with the goals of improving stream habitat and fish passage to support Kokanee salmon and other fish species. Most of the work is anticipated to be complete by September 2021. During construction, drivers can expect intermittent lane closures to allow for utility relocation and site preparation. Later this summer there will be up to a 3 week closure of East Lake Sammamish Parkway at Ebright Creek to allow for installation of the box culvert. Additional notifications, message boards, and signs will be posted to detour traffic around the closure. Please visit the project page on Connect Sammamish to learn more.
228th Avenue Curb Ramp Retrofit and Catch Basin Repairs
The City of Sammamish’s contractor has begun road work on 228th Avenue to retrofit curb ramps, install concrete catch basin aprons and install irrigation sleeve crossings from SE 8th St to NE 8th St. Next week, the contractor plans to finish all the irrigation crossing and may begin exposing catch basins for repair. This work is in preparation for the City resurfacing 228th Avenue in 2022 and benefits the City’s ADA Transition Plan goal of retrofitting all public facilities to meet the current Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) standards. Lane closure hours through the work zone will be between 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. Traffic will be merged to one lane through the work zone and steel plates are anticipated to be on the roadway overnight.
Issaquah Fall City Road
The closure between 247th Place SE and Klahanie Dr. SE is open as of 2:30 p.m. on April 16, 2021. There are many people, businesses and organizations to thank and acknowledge. Take a look at the ceremonial ribbon cutting video(External link) with community acknowledgements. *Safety Reminder – Please observe the contractor’s “Sidewalk Closed” and “No Trespassing” signs at all times.
- On Friday April 16th, the roadway opened up to the public between 247th PL SE and Klahanie. During work hours the public will still 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.
Daytime project work hours are 7:30 a.m. - 5:00 p.m., Saturday work hours: 9:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m.
