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) with reopening early January 2021

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.
