Plan to resurface city streets hinges on grant money

City planners took the first step earlier this month toward repairs for sections of Front Street North and Northwest Sammamish Road.

City Public Works Operations crews plan to grind two to three inches of pavement from the streets and replace the surface with new asphalt. Money for the project hinges on a grant. If the city receives funding, construction could begin by summer.

Crews plan to resurface Front Street North from Sunset Way to Gilman Boulevard and Northwest Sammamish Road from the Lake Sammamish State Park to the western city limits. The project would not increase capacity for the streets.

Planners approved a shoreline exemption permit for the project Feb. 5. The project requires the permit because work will take place near the East Fork of Issaquah Creek, Lake Sammamish and other wetlands. Because the project repairs and maintains existing roadways, the work is exempt from State Environmental Policy Act review.
