The City of Sammamish 2023 Overlay Project will replace the top layer of pavement on selected streets within the Hunter's Ridge and Klahanie neighborhoods.  The major items of work include effort to remove the top two inches of existing pavement, perform pavement repairs, and then place a new layer of hot-mix-asphalt pavement and new pavement markings. 

The streets being resurfaced are:

  • 247th Pl SE / 246th Ave SE / SE 43rd Pl / 244th Pl SE From SE 46th Pl to SE 42nd Pl
  • Klahanie Drive SE From QFC Driveway to 252nd Avenue SE

These streets are also shown on the maps at the bottom of this page. Construction is planned to begin on September 5th and continue through September 29th. Please check the project website for updates to the project schedule.  

Construction Information


Updated September 20th, 2023

Resurfacing of the Klahanie and Hunter's Ridge neighborhoods has been completed. Remaining work includes raising the utilities within the roadways and re-striping the pavement lines/markers. It should be noted that the new asphalt needs to cure for at least two weeks prior to pavement striping. The table below shows the schedule of the remaining work at each neighborhood. The order of work could be adjusted at any time to accommodate weather or unforeseen circumstances.

Hours of Work

Construction generally starts at 7:00 am and ends at 5:00 pm, daily. Actual start and end times may vary slightly depending on construction progress. 

Traffic Control

Most streets will remain open throughout most of the construction, but traffic will be reduced to a shared lane controlled by flaggers. There will not be enough room for U-turns in the work zones so drivers wanting to turn around will need to travel to the next traffic signal outside of the work zone.

Driveway Access

Most of the time, driveways and intersections will remain open. In cul-de-sacs, crews will work with the residents to temporarily close the cul-de-sac so that paving operations can be completed quickly. During the actual paving process, there is typically a two-to-three-hour time period where access to driveways is not allowed. This is time needed for the pavement to cool and harden before traffic can drive on it.

On-Street Parking

On the days of construction, on-street parking will need to be restricted. Signs will be posted in advance of the work to notify residents of the parking restrictions.

Waste & Recycling Schedule

The waste and recycling schedule will not be changed due to construction. When days of paving and waste collection coincide, we work with the collection service to adjust their route schedule and focus first on the streets that are being paved. If there is construction in your neighborhood, please be sure to have your waste and recycling out extra early.

School Bus Routes

The school bus routes and schedule will not be changed due to construction. We will be working with the paving contractor and  Issaquah School District Transportation to ensure unimpeded service to both neighborhoods. 

Tree Trimming

Tree trimming may need to be done in front of your house. If there is vegetation in front of your property that extends out into the street, it will need to be pruned back to allow the equipment to do the street resurfacing. Please trim the vegetation along your property if this is the case. City crews or the Contractor will trim vegetation as needed for the project. However, they will only be doing the minimum needed to clear the road for paving and some additional trimming may need to be completed afterwards by the adjacent property owner.

Street Cuts

Ordinance #02001-78 prohibits the excavation of resurfaced or newly constructed roads for a minimum of five years following construction or paving. If you are planning to have any underground utility work done, such as water, sewer, telephone, gas, electrical, etc., you are strongly encouraged to expedite this work if it involves utility work under the new pavement. Please call us as soon as possible to coordinate this work.
