    Who was the mastermind behind this project running through the night? For all intensive purposes, this is a stretch of residential area. I live just above the uphill pull off and the noise has been unreal! The road is two lanes both ways…there would be no need for a road closure to do this in the day. Has the WDOT ever heard of a lane drop?

    Asside from the noise and stink of this equipment outside my bedroom windows through the night…what in the world was wrong with the road? I drive it daily and it was in better condition than alot in Issaquah. Premium labor for 3rd shift, unnecessary paving, noise nuisance…it all seems like a taxpayer hosing to me.
