Project Update

For project updates and current information regarding the projects progress, please visit:



What are the work hours on Issaquah Fall City Road during construction?

  • Monday - Friday 9:30 am - 3:30 pm
  • During road closure M-F 7 am - 8 pm (between 247th and Klahanie Dr)
  • Optional Saturday work 9 am - 6 pm

Is the closure for the new "bridge" between the middle school and the Klahanie shopping center for the full two years or just a portion of the time? 

  • The road closure is during bridge construction only, currently scheduled to begin March 28, 2020

For the remainder of the road area covered will it be closed for two years? Partially open the whole construction time with flaggers, etc?

  • The portion of road between 247th and Klahanie Dr will be closed for bridge construction, no other closures are planned (barring deliveries of large bridge structures). Construction will be occurring on the entire roadway for 2-years, with traffic control and flaggers during work hours only

will different segments of the road be closed at different times?

  • Large bridge girder deliveries and the operation of large construction equipment and trucks may necessitate the closure of the road at different times, unfortunately, we won't have specific information until bridge construction begins


  • The entire project is scheduled for 2 years of construction. The bridge construction is scheduled to last 8 months

Which segments of the road will be closed? If you are coming from the north (along southbound IFCR), will you still be able to access Klahanie Blvd?

  • The section of roadway between 247th and Klahanie Dr will be closed for bridge construction. You will be able to access Klahanie Dr SE from the East and North

How will the driving public know that local businesses are still open and see real-time project information while driving?

  • The project includes FOUR (4) electronic variable message board signs that will share information with the driving public as the project is being built

Do you have any information about timing of design or construction for Phase 2 of the Issaquah Fall City Road Project, from Klahanie Dr SE to SE Issaquah-Beaver Lake Road?
