The City of Sammamish is about to begin a maintenance project to resurface much of Trossachs Boulevard. The project involves removing the weathered and worn top layer of old pavement and replacing it with a new layer of hot mix asphalt. This work is being done by Lakeside Industries as part of the annual city-wide pavement resurfacing project.
These two sections of Trossachs Boulevard are being resurfaced:
- The south portion from Duthie Hill Road to just north of Cascade Ridge Elementary
- The north portion from Belvedere Way to the north end
The portion in between these sections was resurfaced recently and will not be replaced as part of this project.
Work is scheduled to begin Monday, August 11, and to be completed by August 29. Hours of work will be from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. In the first week the top layer of pavement will be ground off. The grinding and preparation work is expected to take three to four days. In the second week the new surface layer of pavement will be placed. This paving work is expected to take two to three days. Pavement striping will follow in the days soon after the pavement resurfacing.
During this project, the road will remain open and emergency vehicles will have access at all times. However, travel lanes will be reduced to one lane with flaggers controlling the direction of traffic during working hours. During the paving process, there will be short-duration intersection closures when the new asphalt is placed and compacted through the intersection. Please take some time to review routes through the Trossachs neighborhood. Much of the construction will be avoidable by using side streets to get to and from the south end of Trossachs Boulevard.
Your patience is appreciated as the crews work to maintain and improve your city’s streets. Please drive with caution to keep everyone safe. For further information, feel free to contact Jim Grueber in the City of Sammamish Public Works Department at (425) 445-9037 or email@example.com.
