Drivers should prepare for downtown roadwork
November 27, 2012
Motorists should prepare for roadwork in downtown Issaquah through Dec. 1.
The project is scheduled from 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.
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.
