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

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.

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

Community Input 

Throughout 2018 we heard from the Community through our business workshops, community workshop and an online survey which closed with 761 unique users answering at least one question.  

We’ve used this feedback to document project goals, and identify a range of improvements that are possible for Northwest Gilman Boulevard. We heard significant support for the future of Gilman to plan for future light rail, support economic development, improve safety and to enhance the natural environment.
