The City of Issaquah will start a project soon to enhance Northwest Dogwood Street from Newport Way Northwest east to the bridge.
The project will include adding sidewalks, curbs and gutters, and streetlights; installing storm drainage; replacing the existing water main; and updating the landscaping.
Crews will replace the sidewalk and improve connectivity on the north side of the street, and add a sidewalk on the south side of the street.
Crews will start work at the site July 28, 2014. The project is expected to be substantially completed by Salmon Days.
There will be lane closures and parking restrictions during construction. Lane closures will occur during normal construction hours, 7 a.m.-6 p.m. No full street closures will be allowed.
As part of the project, crews will remove 21 trees and, in their place, plant 19 Rocky Mountain glow maples. To prevent future damage to sidewalks, root barriers will be installed.
Tree roots damaged the sidewalk on the north side of the street, and made it difficult for pedestrians to navigate safely. In addition, the existing sidewalk in this area is not complaint with the Americans with Disabilities Act.
