Issaquah’s newest road is scheduled to be open by the end of January!
Issaquah is making a major improvement to its northern road network by extending Southeast 62nd Street between 221st Place and Lake Drive (see project map
The project also:
- Adds two roundabouts where 62nd Street intersects 221st Place and Lake Drive. Widens Southeast 62nd Street between East Lake Sammamish Parkway Southeast and 221st Place Southeast.
- Adds new sidewalks, bike lanes, curbs and gutters, curb ramps and street lights. Makes upgrades along the East Lake Sammamish Trail so that users will no longer have to stop, or interact, with vehicles at Southeast 62nd Street.
- Preserves close to six acres of property between the north fork and main stem of Issaquah Creek, which were previously zoned for multi-family development.
- Constructs two acres of wetland. Makes enhancements to the North Fork of Issaquah Creek.
Fourth Avenue Northwest – also called the Interstate 90 undercrossing – will also reopen by the end of January.
