The King County Road Services Division has a new traffic camera in the May Valley area to help people keep tabs on construction of the new Bandaret Bridge and related traffic disruptions.
The existing Bandaret Bridge spans upper Issaquah Creek on Southeast May Valley Road between 230th Avenue Southeast and 231st Place Southeast. Construction is being done in stages to minimize the impact to the traffic by avoiding a full closure of the bridge.
During construction, the two lanes of two-way traffic at the bridge have been routed to a single lane and controlled by temporary traffic signals and/or flaggers. These restrictions are in place 24/7 through November.
