The City recently realigned the driveways to Providence Point and Forest Village, and installed a traffic signal at the new intersection.
Along with the new intersection, the work also included relocating utilities; constructing detention and stormwater treatment facilities; and installing new sidewalks from Providence Point west to the existing sidewalk in front of Providence Ridge. View the design here.
In 2004, the City completed the Providence Point Transportation Needs Assessment Study. The study was developed in response to the annexation of the Providence Point area to the City of Issaquah in 2003.
In 2005, staff met with the Providence Point Homeowners Association, and ultimately the Council modified the 2005 budget to include $250,000 to begin work on the realignment of the driveways and the installation of a traffic signal at the Providence Point and Forest Village entrances on Southeast 43rd Way. The project stalled several times due to a lack of construction funding, most recently at the end of 2010.
In 2018, the project was revived, and the design was brought up to current standards. On February 3, 2020 the City Council awarded a construction contract to Rodarte Construction, Inc., the lowest responsive and responsible bidder.
Construction started on Monday, March 16, 2020 and was completed in early 2021.
