UPDATE Tuesday, February 1

The City anticipates the contractor will begin work this week to rewire the street lights on Issaquah Fall City Road between Klahanie and 247th Pl after a wire theft in mid-January. The junction boxes where the wires were stolen from will be reinforced for more security.

Unfortunately, a second wire theft occurred last weekend on Issaquah Fall City Road between 247th Pl and Issaquah Pine Lake Road. The City will work with the contractor to also restore and secure this area as well. 

The City is coordinating efforts with Sammamish Police on preventing wire theft incidents from reoccurring. As always, please call 9-1-1 to report suspicious activity.
