New Verizon Project Means Good News/Bad News for Sammamish

Release Date: June 12, 2019

The good news is that Verizon is doing a nationwide 5G system upgrade.

The bad news is that as part of this upgrade there will be construction along 228th Ave, NE starting Thursday, June 13.

The work will include boring under the sidewalk and parts of 228th Ave. beginning at Inglewood Hill and heading south to SE 8th, to install conduit for fiber installation.

One lane of 228th north bound may be closed between the hours of 9:30 a.m. and 3 p.m., Monday through Friday; sidewalks may also be closed.

This project along 228th may go through the middle of July; other City streets will also have work done later this year.
