Downtown Snoqualmie streets will receive infrastructure improvements to water mains, pavement, and gutters beginning this month.

The “Greek Streets Utility Infrastructure Improvement Project” will implement these infrastructure upgrades to the neighborhood streets between Schusman Avenue SE and Falls Ave SE. The project names comes from the project’s primary improvement sites being SE Alpha Street, SE Gamma Street, and SE Epsilon Street.

Construction equipment will be moved to the neighborhood on May 10 and work will begin the week of May 13. Work is expected to continue through the summer.

In a press release, the city said it recognizes construction will create some parking challenges around Mount Si High School but states the goal of the project is to have the nearest portion of the neighborhood complete before the opening of the new school buildings.

Student parking will be accessible on Meadowbrook Way Southeast. The rear parking lot for staff and visitors will still be open, but access may be delayed due to paving and utility work in the area.
