[ARCHIVED] Snoqualmie Parkway Paving Takes Place the Week of Aug. 28: Plan Ahead for Back-to-School

Contractor crews working for the City of Snoqualmie are nearing completion of the full repaving of Snoqualmie Parkway and are scheduled to pave the southwest lanes of the 3.5-mile-long roadway the week of Aug. 28. 

Paving work is scheduled Monday–Thursday from 7 am to 5:30 pm. Work is weather dependent and subject to change. Traffic delays are expected, and drivers should  plan for extra travel time.   

Crews will begin paving on Monday, Aug. 28 near Railroad Ave/SR 202 and work their way toward SE 99th Street near I-90 over the course of the week.  They are scheduled to spend the first two workdays paving the outside southwest lane of Snoqualmie Parkway, and then move to the inside southwest lane on days three and four. 

Due to rain delays in early August, this paving will overlap with the start of the school year.  City and contractors are trying to mitigate impacts to the school district, students, and families, but with a project of this size and importance, potential delays cannot be fully mitigated. For student safety, the City will provide  police officers to support contractor traffic control crews at intersections where students cross Snoqualmie Parkway to access school busses or buildings.

The City continues to urge drivers to plan for extra travel time. Families who drive Snoqualmie Parkway to access school buildings can consider alternate routes - depending on the paving schedule locations - and allow extra time to reach their destinations. 

See the baseline paving schedule map below, and please note, segment start and end points may change due to weather and other factors. This map is available to assist drivers with general route planning.

Options for Timber Ridge Elementary School (TRES) Families:

  • Walk if possible or use school busses to reduce cars on Snoqualmie Parkway.
  • Use SE Jacobia Street to access TRES. Deer Park neighborhood residents can use Swenson Drive to Swing Ave to Jacobia as an alternate route to TRES.
  • Heights neighborhood families can consider parking on Douglas Ave near Snoqualmie Parkway and using the Snoqualmie Parkway walking path to access TRES.

Options for Mount Si High School Students and Families:

  • Consult paving schedule map and depending on construction location, consider alternative side streets to access Snoqualmie Parkway or consider eastbound I-90 to exit 27 as an alternative route to downtown Snoqualmie. 
  • Carpool or use school busses to reduce cars on Snoqualmie Parkway.
  • Plan for extra travel time.  

The City continues to appreciate residents’ patience and understanding while this important roadway improvement project is completed. 

Parkway Rehabilitation Project
Rehabilitating the pavement and intersection ADA ramps and curbs of the 3.5-mile-long Snoqualmie Parkway is an important City capital improvement project. The approximate $3.75 million, three-month project began the week of June 19 and is being funded by a one-time state appropriation.
