Traffic on Southeast May Valley Road is restricted to one lane just west of Issaquah-Hobart Road. The closure started at 6 a.m. today.

Crews are replacing the Bandaret Bridge across Issaquah Creek. The roadway is expected to be narrowed to one lane over the creek through November.

A new temporary traffic signal at 230th Avenue Southeast and May Valley Road will allow vehicles to proceed through the construction zone in one direction at a time.

The King County Department of Transportation is overseeing the $5.5 million project.

The existing bridge, near Issaquah-Hobart Road between 230th Avenue Southeast and 231st Place Southeast, carries about 5,100 vehicles daily – too many for an aging, deteriorating structure, transportation officials said.
