Sunset/Second Improvements
Sunset and Second Signal
The Issaquah School District is installing a new traffic signal at the intersection of East Sunset Way and Second Avenue Southeast this summer that will cause significant traffic impacts during construction.

The school district is installing this new signal – which will enhance traffic flow and safety – to accommodate Issaquah Middle School and Clarke Elementary. 

Starting June 21, 2017, crews will typically be working from 7 a.m.-3 p.m. Monday-Friday at the intersection. Minimal traffic impacts are expected at the intersection in the first few days as crews prepare the site. A tree located at northwest corner of the intersection will also be removed to accommodate the new signal.

Drivers and residents can expect lane closures at the intersection in the coming weeks, including periodic detours for certain construction activities.

During peak construction times, flaggers will be onsite to assist vehicles, cyclists and pedestrians. 

The Issaquah School District plans to send e-mail updates (sign up here) on specific traffic impacts throughout this project. Signage will also be placed onsite. The district aims to have the signal installed before school starts this fall.

Second Avenue Road Improvements
As the Issaquah School District continues its work at Issaquah Middle School, crews will also be making improvements along Second Avenue Southeast from Southeast Evans Street to the Issaquah High School entrance. The improvements – made to the east side of the street – include widening the sidewalk, new lighting and a landscape buffer between the road and sidewalk. The work is expected to take place July-August 2017. 

Drivers can expect construction-related delays, but no full closures of the roadway. Pedestrian access will be directed to the west side of the street.
