Corridor Concept
Workshop

Overview

The City of Issaquah is developing a preliminary design, also called a corridor concept, for Newport Way Northwest from State Route 900 to Southeast 54th Street. 

This preliminary design will re-envision the road as a parkway, including a median/turn pockets, landscaped buffers on both sides of the road, bike lanes and sidewalks. Each intersection and driveway access point will be examined, and alternatives will be discussed in depth.

Project Goals
  • Maintain or enhance corridor character
  • Design for future traffic on the corridor
  • Design for improved pedestrian and bicycle facilities and roadway crossings
  • Provide traffic access to residences 

Engagement

Workshops
As a first step in the engagement process, the City convened residents to attend a series of two, in-depth workshops in June 2017 that covered design opportunities and challenges moving forward.

Workshop #1

Workshop #2

Neighborhood Meeting #1
In July, the City hosted a meeting to answer development-related questions we heard in the first two workshops, and share the Gateway and Riva developer frontage improvements that are anticipated to be under construction later this year.

Spyglass/Sammamish Pointe Neighborhood Meeting
In August, the City hosted a neighborhood meeting with Spyglass and Sammamish Pointe to review roundabout design.

Neighborhood Meeting #2
Before the City Council considers a preliminary design concept, the City hosted a final workshop in October for community members. 

Next Steps
The City Council will review and discuss the design report at its:
  • Work Session meeting Nov. 13
  • Council Infrastructure Committee meeting Nov. 16 
  • Regular City Council meeting Dec. 4
