Motorists should prepare for roadwork in downtown Issaquah from Tuesday through Saturday.
The project is scheduled for 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. near the corner of Front Street South and East Sunset Way. Crews plan to install sewer and storm water lines for the rebuilt downtown Shell gas station and Jacksons convenience store.
The work is scheduled for nighttime and early morning hours to reduce traffic impacts. Motorists should expect Front Street to remain open — albeit with reduced lanes at times — during the construction.
The planned store at Front Street and Sunset Way should feature a more modern, spacious layout and additional options.
The planned façade includes sconces and stone accents. The gas station site is also in line to receive additional landscaping after construction concludes.
Crews started the major overhaul Sept. 11, a day after the business closed to customers.
The rebuilt store is expected to open to customers next month or in early 2013.
