Due to unforeseen circumstances, including construction delays caused by necessary third-party utility relocations and inclement weather, the City of Sammamish's Public Works Department has determined the road opening by end of January is not feasible.

The City of Sammamish has looked at options to hasten the construction or partial openings but has determined in an abundance of caution that these options are not safe nor realistic due to weather events and fiscal constraints.

Upon reviewing the contractor's updated and current schedule, and the status of utility relocations, the bridge and roadway are now scheduled to be opened to traffic on May 1, 2021.

This is the real estate climate we're currently living in—and it has everything to do with the COVID-19 pandemic.

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a major impact on the real estate industry, and as a result, many parts of the country are experiencing what is known as a seller's market. The pandemic caused everyone to reevaluate where they're being quarantined.  Take the simple fact that a home is no longer a home, the home is now a workplace as well. It's also a school.
