The city is developing design options for the first phase of improvements to Issaquah-Fall City Road. To help collect public input on the matter, the city is holding a “Community Workshop” on Thursday, May 12, 6-8 p.m., at Pacific Cascade Middle School, 24635 S.E. Issaquah-Fall City Road.

Phase 1 improvements will stretch seven-tenths of a mile from 242nd Avenue Southeast to Klahanie Drive Southeast, a section of Issaquah-Fall City Road that suffers from heavy congestion during the morning and evening rush hours. The broad goal is to widen this roadway segment to five lanes and add bike lanes, sidewalks and landscaping.

A second, later phase of improvements will focus on Issaquah-Fall City Road from Klahanie Drive Southeast to Issaquah-Beaver Lake Road. It’s anticipated that phase will widen the road to just three lanes.

The May 12 workshop will allow residents to learn about Phase 1, meet the project team, share thoughts on priorities and concerns, and discuss potential design options. An overview of the project will be presented between 6 and 6:30 p.m., with an open house to follow.

Assuming the project receives the final go-ahead, construction could begin as early as summer 2017.
