Crews plan to remove street parking along East Sunset Way as part of project to relieve traffic congestion.
Work at East Sunset Way and Second Avenue Southeast starts Monday.
The city required the Issaquah School District to complete the project as part of the ongoing Issaquah High School renovation. The school sits along Second Avenue Southeast.
Plans call for another lane to be added on westbound East Sunset Way to create a left-turn lane — plus a combined through and right-turn lane — at the intersection.
Second Avenue Southeast between East Sunset Way and Southeast Andrews Street will be restriped to add a northbound right-turn lane approaching East Sunset Way.
In order to make room for the upgrades, street parking must be removed along the north side of East Sunset Way from Second Avenue Southeast to Third Avenue Northeast, and both sides of Second Avenue Southeast from East Sunset Way to Southeast Andrews Street.
The project also adds a sidewalk along the north side of East Sunset Way.
The district plans to avoid closures during peak commutes. Expect traffic delays at other times. Learn more by calling the city Public Works Engineering Department at 837-3400.
