Starting June 8, Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) work crews began work within City limits on their Auxiliary Lane and Sound-Wall Project along Interstate-90. Crews recently removed trees within WSDOT’s right of way in preparation for sound wall shaft drilling which will begin this week along both eastbound and westbound I-90. During the next few months, residences located adjacent to I-90 along NW Sammamish Road/West Lake Sammamish Parkway may experience noise impacts due to construction efforts, though these should be limited primarily to day-time hours.
Construction work will last for approximately six months within the City limits. Most work will occur along I-90, and will not impact City Streets with the following exceptions:
- Work will occur along NW Sammamish Road for 90 days, requiring a closure of the eastbound lane and detour. This work is scheduled to begin in the middle of July and take approximately 3 months to complete.
- Work will require periodic overnight freeway ramp closures, requiring detours along City streets for those entering/exiting the freeway. No ramp closures will occur during daytime hours.
