Issaquah drivers should plan ahead for Father’s Day, when two events will affect traffic throughout the city.
Front Street North will be closed from 6 a.m. – 4 p.m. Sunday for Mountains to Sound Greenway Days Fenders on Front Street Car Show and Cruise. The street will be closed from East Sunset Way to Northwest Gilman Boulevard. See a map here.
The same afternoon, a bicycle ride for the LIVESTRONG Challenge will travel through Issaquah on the following roads: Issaquah-Hobart Road Southeast, Second Avenue Southeast, East Sunset Way, Highlands Drive Northeast, Southeast Black Nugget Road and East Lake Sammamish Parkway.
After traveling north, the cyclists will briefly return to the city on Southeast Newport Way and Northwest Village Park Drive. Another route will also include Newport Way Northwest.
These roads will not be closed during the ride, and cyclists will be required to adhere to the rules of the road. Drivers should expect possible delays. See a map here.
