Corridor Concept
Newport Way Concept


The City of Issaquah developed a preliminary design, also called a corridor concept, for Newport Way Northwest between SR 900 and SE 54th Street that was adopted by City Council on December 4, 2017 (AB 7484). 

The adopted concept described in the Design Report (and appendices) was selected based on the engineering and operational analysis, and direction from the community. The project included an extensive community outreach process of neighborhood meetings, community workshops and stakeholder meetings in order to receive input on the issues and needs for the corridor.  Summaries of these public meetings including presentation materials and participant comments can be found in the appendices of the design report and appendices.
