Instead of calling it quits once and for all on the Southeast Bypass project, the Issaquah City Council voted last night to refer the issue to committee for further study.
More than 100 people turned out for a standing-room-only meeting last night in council chambers to voice their opinions on the project.
The Southeast Bypass — a 1.2-mile stretch intended to serve as a passage for commuters now clogging downtown streets in Issaquah — has sparked debate for years because some argue it would be an environmental nightmare and do nothing to solve the city’s traffic woes.
Proponents say the project would alleviate congestion.
