Corridor Concept
Newport Rendering


The City of Issaquah is designing future improvements for Newport Way Northwest between State Route 900 and Southeast 54th Street.

A corridor concept was adopted by City Council on Dec. 4, 2017.

The adopted concept described in the Design Report (and appendices) was selected based on engineering and operational analysis, as well as significant input from the community.
Updated Design Work
After reaching 60 percent design for the corridor, a value engineering study was conducted to find opportunities to improve the value of the project and/or find cost savings.

Considering the study’s recommendations and the City’s recent purchase of the abutting Bergsma property, as well as the previous community input, the new preferred road section includes the following design changes to the corridor concept on the Cougar Mountain side of the road between Northwest Oakcrest Drive and SR 900:
  • A possible narrower sidewalk (5- to 6-feet instead of 6 feet)  
  • No landscape buffers on either side of the sidewalk
  • A shorter retaining wall with less impact to Cougar Mountain

No other changes were recommended for roadway design. Learn more via this presentation and memo, and watch online.

Next Steps 
An open house will be scheduled for June 2019 (more details are coming soon!) to present these changes in person, answer any questions and review next steps for this project.

Following environmental permit approval, the team will finalize design and begin right-of-way acquisitions. The construction schedule is pending funding.
