Southeast 24th Street Sidewalk Improvements

Starting July 16, crews will install a new storm drainage system and construct a new sidewalk and bike lane on Southeast 24th Street. Work is expected to last until Aug. 16. Crews will work between the hours of 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays through Fridays. During construction, traffic will often be reduced to a shared lane controlled by flaggers.

Traffic Signal & Street Light Pole Repaint

Crews are working on painting the poles on Southeast 30th Street along the South Sammamish Park & Ride and the intersection of 228th Avenue Southeast and Southeast 30th Street. The contractor will work on the poles individually starting from the west toward the intersection. Flaggers will be alternating traffic on Southeast 30th Street just west of the Park and Ride. When working at the intersection, the lanes will be partially closed to protect the work zone. The work is expected to last for three weeks and crews will be in the area from 8 p.m. - 5 a.m. Drivers should use caution when traveling through the area during this time.

PSE working on Louis Thompson Road power lines

Puget Sound Energy is currently replacing and raising the height of light poles in the project area. This work is being done to keep power lines clear from the City's construction. 

Some vegetation will need to be removed in the vicinity of existing poles to facilitate new pole installation. In addition, the canopy of large trees will be trimmed to create clearance for the electric wires on these taller poles. Electrical work began June 14. PSE expects this work to be completed by the end of July.

Road Striping and Thermoplastic Markings Maintenance Work

The City will be performing striping and thermoplastic maintenance work on the city’s roads throughout the months of July and August to refresh existing fog lines, center lines, thermoplastic markings, and raised pavement markers. Thermoplastic markings include arrows, stop bars, bike symbols, and other markings in the roadway. This work will be occurring intermittently throughout the summer. Crews will place signage and warnings of wet paint, and drivers should expect delays and use caution.

Road maintenance on 244th Avenue Northeast near Redmond Fall City Rd (SR-202)

This is a King County Local Services project.

Due to a slide occurring in winter 2020, both lanes of 244th Avenue Northeast are narrowed until the impacted support wall can be repaired. Soil samples yielded unexpected data, which caused the design phase to be extended. The repair of the support wall is expected to begin July 8, 2024 and will last approximately six weeks. During this time 244th Avenue Northeast near SR 202 will be fully closed in both directions and a detour plan will be put in place. The King County Road Services Division has a 24/7 Road Helpline - (206) 477-8100. Please plan ahead for delays and extended travel times. For more information please visit the project webpage.

WSDOT Traffic Alerts

Traffic Alert: I-90 Lane Closures

Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) crews are continuing repairs on the Interstate 90 project, which will have congestion impacts, especially during peak travel time. These are a continuation of repairs WSDOT began in summer 2022. While this work is occurring, please plan ahead and allow extra time.

State Route 18 Closures

People who use State Route 18 should expect slight traffic shifts during the daytime commute and intermittent nightly lane reductions. This may be as early as 8 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays, with all lanes reopening by 5 a.m. Flaggers will direct motorists when traffic is reduced to one lane. People should continue to plan extra time for their trips, as contractor crews work to widen the highway and redesign the interchange.
