Improvements will begin soon along Northwest Dogwood Street.
Starting May 26, 2015, a section of the street will close as a new bridge is built. The street will be closed from approximately Third Place Northwest to the 110 block of Northwest Dogwood Street.
Signage will provide detour information for pedestrians and drivers. The new bridge is expected to open in early October.
The existing bridge, which was built in 1950, will be replaced with a span that includes two 12-foot travel lanes, sidewalks and bike lanes.
In addition, the project will provide street lighting, and move overhead utilities underground. The new bridge design will also reduce the chance of flooding in Issaquah Creek, by providing more capacity for the creek.
Five Rivers Construction is the contractor for the project. Funding for the Northwest Dogwood Street Bridge is provided primarily through a $2,254,400 federal grant, with the City contributing $563,600 toward the project.
