By 5:30 p.m. the other day, the line of bumper-to-bumper cars extended as far as I could see on Front Street. The reader who suggested this location said this is a daily occurrence. The gridlock feeds into Issaquah-Hobart Road and goes all the way to Highway 18 on the other side of Tiger Mountain.
Issaquah has put a lot of effort in revitalizing its downtown over the years. It has a trolley line, a rail museum, a vintage gas station turned events venue and many shops, restaurants and small businesses. It’s too bad that it becomes a parking lot for much of the rush hour.
