City of Sammamish - COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Information & Resources
The City of Sammamish is soliciting interest and qualifications from firms with expertise in Civil and Environmental Engineering, Land Surveying, Planning, Design and Construction to perform preliminary engineering and prepare final project plans, specifications, and cost estimates for our East Lake Sammamish Shore Lane Project project.
This project is to reconstruct approximately a 900’ section of East Lake Sammamish Shore Lane SE (Shore Lane) from SE 33rd St to the gate entering the property of 3611 East Lake Sammamish Shore Lane SE. Shore Lane is a residential street west of East Lake Sammamish Parkway that services 14 homes. The exact location is outlined in the ‘Vicinity Map’, Attachment B. The street exists in CITY right-of-way between residential properties on the west and King County right-of-way for the trail on the east. The road is not built to current CITY standards and is approximately only 18’ wide with very thin layers of HMA and base courses.
Shore Lane currently is the lowest rated street by PCI in Sammamish. The entire street contains heavy alligator cracking and the southern 450’ has significant settlement issues. Geotechnical inspection found the southern portion of the road is built on top of layers of organic material including peat and sawdust dating back to when the area was used as a sawmill. The depths of organic layers are unverified but may be multiple feet deep from preliminary street coring done in early 2021. The initial recommendation of the geotechnical engineer was to rebuild the roadway cross section for the southern half of the street above a layer of lightweight fill material. The base material on the northern half is of less concern and only a new pavement layer was recommended during the same exploration.
This project concept is straightforward, but there are known complexities that the CONSULT will need to work through. The following is not to be considered a full list of complexities but highlights the currently known challenges.
The final product of this contract will be for the CITY to have a useable, construction ready plan set, specification package and engineer’s estimate for the reconstruction of East Lake Sammamish Shore Lane SE in time to be construction ready in July 2023.
