Like every other city in the state, Issaquah annually goes through the exercise of creating a Transportation Improvement Program, a list of proposed transportation projects to hopefully be undertaken in the next six years, in this case, through 2021.
The TIP is a requirement of state law and makes the listed projects eligible for state and federal funding. The 61 projects on Issaquah’s 2016 list range from a $30 million plan to extend Southeast 62nd Street into the Pickering Place shopping center to a trail connection in Tibbetts Valley Park priced at about $48,000.
