May Valley Road lane closures start Jan. 13, 2015 and into February

King County announced that guardrail work on Southeast May Valley Road will close one of two lanes in an area east of State Route 900 and west of 229th Drive Southeast starting Jan. 13 and lasting through mid-February. The lane closures are scheduled for approximately 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. each weekday.

The county’s contractor will be adjusting the guardrail due to changes in the road height after recent repaving. Flaggers will alternate traffic directions, and travelers should expect delays at the work site in addition to delays from the automated traffic signal at the site of the 2014 ongoing lane closure.

Following the completion of work on Southeast May Valley Road, the contractor will perform similar guardrail work on a recently repaved segment of Southeast Issaquah-Hobart Road from south of the Issaquah city limits to Southeast 132nd Way. Additional information about the second project will be sent prior to lane closures there.

Have an opportunity to help fund the FCUAC or need funding for a community project?
The funding mechanism for the UAC has changed. We are no longer funded by King County directly for our operations. As of June 30, 2013  we received notice from the IRS that we have been approved as a tax exempt 501 (c) (3) non profit organization. This allows us to receive tax deductible Bequests, devises, transfers, or Gifts under IRS code. Four Creeks intends for some funding available each year for community benefit projects. Our support of National Night Out is an example. This year, the UAC is also working on a project to make high-quality maps available to residents in the Four Creeks area.

If you have an idea for a project that would provide broad benefit in the Four Creeks area, send it along with your email address, or contact a current member.
