Three Week Look-Ahead 1/8 - 1/29

Below is your three week look-ahead for 1/8 - 1/29:

Update as of 1/29:

Due to unforeseen circumstances, including construction delays caused by necessary third party utility relocations and inclement weather, the City of Sammamish Public Works Department has determined the road opening by end of January is not feasible.

The City of Sammamish has looked at options to hasten the construction or partial openings, but has determined in an abundance of caution that these options are not safe nor realistic due to weather events and fiscal constraints.

Upon reviewing the contractor's updated and current schedule, and the status of utility relocations, the bridge and roadway are now scheduled to be opened to traffic on May 1, 2021.

We understand and apologize for this inconvenience and thank you for your continued patience as we work to improve the City’s traffic flow.

Daytime Project work hours are 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., Saturday Work Hours 9:00 a.m. – 6 p.m.

Update as of 1/22:

Issaquah-Fall City Road remains closed for construction. Local access will be maintained during the closure. The closure between 247th Place SE and Klahanie Dr. SE will now remain until the end of January 2021.

  1. Construction of the bridge is underway with plans to open two lanes of traffic on the north half of the bridge by the end of January 2021. The south half of the bridge will remain closed while utilities are incorporated in the bridge abutment retaining walls (small wall connections).
  2. Construction of the retaining walls and bridge approaches on the east and west side of the bridge is currently being built.
  3. Between 242nd and 247th Ave. SE, traffic remains on the south side of the roadway. Work continues along the north half of the roadway in this area. The contractor is installing the concrete sidewalk along the north side and placing concrete in the median islands.
  4. Construction of the 242nd roundabout will resume earlier December, as the utilities completing the final relocations in this area.
  5. The contractor will be working on the new detention pond and storm drainage facilities at the northwest corner of the intersection of Issaquah Fall City Road and Klahanie Drive SE.
  6. With the daylight hours shortening in the fall and winter, the contractor is expected to work on the occasional Saturdays to take advantage of daylight hours, weather and keep on schedule.
