South Cove
Overview
During the next several years, the City of Issaquah is making important infrastructure improvements to the South Cove, Greenwood Point and Timberlake neighborhoods!

Infrastructure
To ensure aging infrastructure remains reliable in the decades to come, Issaquah will:
  • Replace 50-year-old water mains
  • Line 50-year-old aging sewer mains
  • Address specific stormwater drainage issues
  • Pave several streets with new asphalt as part of the Pavement Management Program

Northwest Sammamish Road
As part of its auxiliary lanes and sound wall project, the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) – with the request of a financial contribution from the City – included plans to relocate a retaining wall along Northwest Sammamish Road at the “pinch point” to provide room for future intermodal improvements.
 
At the regular meeting on March 18, the City Council discussed WSDOT’s financial request, and voted to commit up to $3 million for the project.

Leveraging the work WSDOT is already doing along the Northwest Sammamish Road corridor, the funding commitment would allow the move and rebuild of a retaining wall — creating a widened right-of-way that will be deeded to the City after the completion of the auxiliary lane project. 

This is the first step toward the City’s longer-term goal of making Northwest Sammamish Road more accommodating for cyclists and pedestrians. Any multi-modal improvements to the road, such as building sidewalks, marking bike lanes or improving connectivity are on the long-term capital improvement list for the City.  

WSDOT has begun the bid process for their auxiliary lane project. Should the bids exceed WSDOT’s allocated funding for the entire project, the project would be postponed and potentially revisited at a later time.
