212th Way Southeast and Snake Hill Road reopened to traffic

The city of Sammamish held a ribbon cutting ceremony on May 15.

The city of Sammamish announced the reopening of 212th Way Southeast and Snake Hill Road during a ribbon cutting ceremony on May 15.

The 212th Way Southeast and Snake Hill project was a necessary repair and rehabilitation project to stabilize the failing road embankment. The section requiring stabilization was approximately 2,800 feet in length starting near 212th Ave Southeast at the top of the hill and extending southwest. The project began in the summer of 2017, and included a full reconstruction of the road through the embankment stabilization section including two travel lanes, paved shoulders, curb and gutter, and a storm water system.

“We are very pleased to be able to reopen this road to the public,” stated city manager Lyman Howard in a press release. “We know that the road closure was challenging for members of the community, but we are happy to have the repairs completed and to be confident that this road is now safe for vehicle travel.”

During the next few weeks contractors will be completing final work on the project’s shoulders. While completing these final items travelers may periodically experience minor delays.
