Phase 1 of this project will widen Issaquah Fall City Road between 242nd Ave SE and Klahanie Dr SE. Issaquah Fall City Road will be widened to 4 thru lanes, with intersection improvements at 242nd, 247th, and Klahanie Drive. Project design began March 23, 2016, with design completion scheduled for December 2017. Construction is scheduled for Summer 2018, for compatibility with grant funding applications.
Thank you for your valuable input at the 5/12/16 and 7/13/16 Public Meetings. The City of Sammamish have had meetings with officials from the Issaquah School District and Eastridge Church to discuss the intersections at 247th and 242nd. The project team is currently working towards completing 30% plan design in June 2017.
As part of the newly annexed section of the City (January 1, 2016), SE Issaquah-Fall City Road is a vital connection route to existing residents of the City of Sammamish and surrounding communities. This project will increase the capacity of this roadway segment by widening the existing 2-lane section to a 4-lane section. The project will also promote the City’s goals of complete streets by including bike lanes, sidewalks, landscaping, and a protected student crossing at Pacific Cascade Middle School.
