SE Issaquah-Fall City Road is classified as a primary arterial roadway located along the southeastern boundary of the CITY. The majority of the existing roadway within the project limits consists of a two lane paved road with paved shoulders, open ditches and no pedestrian amenities. There are existing turn pockets at some of the intersections between the project termini.
This project will improve SE Issaquah-Fall City Road to an urban five (5) lane cross section with curb, gutter, sidewalk, bike lanes, landscape strips and a center left turn lane. The work to be performed by the Consultant will consist of preliminary planning and engineering design for improvements to SE Issaquah-Fall City Road from the end of the current five (5) lane roadway section at approximately 242nd Avenue SE to just beyond the intersection with Klahanie Drive SE. The planning level total project cost estimate for this project is $11 million.
A $5M CONNECTING WASHINGTON grant has been awarded to the project. Funds will be allocated for project construction costs, with $3.5M in Phase 1, and $1.5M for Phase 2.
