The City of Issaquah is closing East Sunset Way from Second Avenue SE to I-90 Exit 18 off-ramps starting 7 a.m. Aug. 13 for a continuous 36 hours, including overnight.

As part of Issaquah’s Pavement Management Program (PMP), crews will be paving the road, which is cracked, bumpy, and has a damaged asphalt surface. As a major arterial in Issaquah, roughly 115,000 vehicles use this bumpy stretch of roadway each week.

Issaquah scheduled this work in August to reduce the risk of weather impacts. In addition, traffic volumes are reduced by a third while school is out of session. The continuous, full closure prevents a longer, five-day impact to the neighborhood.

While East Sunset Way will be closed to cyclists and pedestrians, the Rainier Trail, Sixth Avenue SE and East Sunset Way Trailhead will be open.

To access homes and businesses in the work zone, please use Second Avenue Southeast and adjacent side streets. For special accommodations, please call (425) 837-3473.

At least 24 hours before work starts, crews will place “no parking” signs on affected streets. Please remove all vehicles out of these zones to avoid towing.
