Newport Way - Maple to Sunset

Newport Way Rendering

Overview

Issaquah is designing improvements to Newport Way Northwest from Northwest Maple Street to West Sunset Way. This project would enhance the street with:

  • Roundabouts at the intersections of Northwest Juniper, Northwest Holly and Northwest Dogwood streets
  • An additional southbound lane from Maple to just south of Holly
  • Improvements at the intersections of Newport and Maple, and Newport and Sunset
  • A shared-use path on the east side
  • A sidewalk on the west side
  • Bike lanes and landscaping on both sides

Estimated Cost

The estimated cost is $38 million.

Current Conditions

Newport includes only one lane in each direction with narrow shoulders and a narrow sidewalk. Side streets controlled by stop signs significantly impact traffic flow.
