Northwest Gilman Boulevard

There’s a need to improve Northwest Gilman Boulevard – from State Route 900 to Front Street N. – for pedestrians, cyclists, transit users and drivers. 

Together with Issaquah residents, corridor users and local business owners, the City is developing a plan this year that will:
  • Document the community’s vision for the corridor
  • Strategize how to implement that vision

Community Input 

For those who attended an open house or completed the online survey by the July 13, 2018 - thank you!

We’ll use this feedback to document project goals, and identify a range of improvements that are possible for Northwest Gilman Boulevard.

Project Goals
  • Improve safety
  • Improve non-motorized mobility
  • Guide future development and potential City Capital Improvement Projects
  • Maintain current economic vitality
  • Improve park integration
  • Create a signature street with character

Why is this project necessary?
  • Gilman is not a bike- or pedestrian-friendly environment, with incomplete bike lanes and narrow sidewalks with inconstant landscape buffers.
  • There is a high number of vehicle conflicts along the corridor.
  • There is no standard cross-section applied to Gilman in the Central Issaquah plan. The lack of street standards causes uncertainty for property owners, City staff and developers.
  • The existing right-of-way varies significantly, and the City is not currently using the full extent of the right of way available.

After developing a corridor framework in 2018, the City will start Phase 2 in 2019, which is creating a corridor concept that shows:

  • Location and width of pedestrian facilities
  • Location and width of bike facilities
  • Medians and landscaping
  • Vehicle travel and turn lanes
  • Driveway locations and access points
  • Intersection control
