Plan for overnight construction along Northwest Gilman Boulevard through Friday, as workers limit traffic to a single lane in each direction.
Crews plan to close lanes from 8 p.m. until 5 a.m. in order to construct the Interstate 90 Undercrossing, a road link between north and south Issaquah.
The city hopes the connector reduces traffic congestion at the I-90 interchanges at Front Street North and state Route 900.
Crews started construction on the initial piece of the undercrossing in May. Construction should wrap by early fall.
Plans call for the completed roadway to run from the traffic signal at the post office along Northwest Gilman Boulevard, form a T-shaped intersection at Southeast 62nd Street, continue along 221st Place Southeast and then end at Southeast 56th Street.
