Be ready to tap your brakes as you head downhill on Inglewood Hill Road. The city, in partnership with Sammamish Plateau Water, is installing, among other things, a water main replacement, new storm water pipe, new sidewalks, and water quality treatment infrastructure. The work is slated to continue through January 2017.
All lanes will be kept open during the morning and evening rush hours, but traffic will sometimes be limited to a single lane between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. Much of the early work will be toward the bottom of the hill, near the intersection with East Lake Sammamish Parkway. During lane closures, a traffic officer will be stationed at that intersection.
Known officially as the “Inglewood Hill Stormwater Retrofit and Non-Motorized Improvement Project,” this major initiative will help with long-standing flooding and erosion issues, reduce the flow of contaminants into Lake Sammamish, and provide a much-needed east-to-west sidewalk connection for pedestrians. A portion of the project cost will be offset by two grants totaling $1.1 million. The total project budget is $5.9 million.
The work along Inglewood Hill Road will extend from 212th Avenue Northeast to East Lake Sammamish Parkway. Some minor work will also be done along 208th Avenue Northeast, 210th Avenue Northeast, 211th Avenue Northeast, 211th Place Northeast, 212th Avenue Northeast, and Northeast 15th Street. The sidewalk will be installed only on the north side of Inglewood Hill Road.
