Overview
Crews will work throughout Issaquah to improve sidewalks and pedestrian crossings at several locations. Work on the projects, identified in our crossing study, will occur during the summer and fall of 2017.

Second Avenue Southeast (Starts Aug. 18)
  • To improve safety and pedestrian access near several schools, crews will add a pedestrian crossing of Second Avenue Southeast at the Rainier Trail, along with a flashing beacon.
  • From Aug. 18-Sept. 5, at least one lane of Second Avenue will be open at all times, with a flagger alternating traffic.
  • To minimize traffic impacts, crews will be allowed to work only from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. weekdays.
  • There will be short-term sidewalk closures at the crossing.

Maple Mini-Roundabout (Starts Sept. 5)
  • This project will add a mini-roundabout at the Trader Joe's/Target intersection to improve function and safety; provide a more intuitive intersection for pedestrians and drivers; and install rectangular rapid flashing beacons for the pedestrian crossings on Maple Street.
  • Construction will require a full closure of Maple Street from Gilman Boulevard through the Trader Joe's/Target intersection from Sept. 5-26. During the closure, work will be allowed 12 hours per day, seven days a week. 
  • Metro bus routes 200, 208, 214 and 271 will be detoured. 
  • No delivery truck access will be permitted through this intersection for the duration of construction.
  • After the closure, some additional work will need to be completed. At least one lane will be open at all times with flaggers alternating traffic. Driveway access will be maintained during peak business hours.
  • During the closure, drivers will still be able to access local businesses from the access points shown below.
