For the next several years, numerous public and private projects are planned along Newport Way Northwest between State Route 900 and Southeast 54th Street.
Expect to see changes along the corridor, including new homes, a new roundabout, a culvert replacement, road improvements, tree removal and new landscaping.
The City is also developing a preliminary design, also called a corridor concept, for this section of Newport that would re-envision it as a parkway, including a median/turn pockets, landscaped buffers on both sides of the road, bike lanes and sidewalks. This summer, the City will be reaching out to neighborhoods along the corridor with engagement opportunities.
More information, including a tentative projects timeline and map of estimated traffic impacts, is available at issaquahwa.gov/newport
Community members can also sign up
