SE Petrovitsky Road & 140th Avenue SE
Night work is underway at the following locations from Thursday, July 22 through Thursday, August 19, 7 p.m. to 5 a.m.:

  • SE Petrovitsky Road, east of 143rd Avenue SE to west of 151st Avenue SE
  • 140th Avenue SE, from SE 192nd Street to SE 183rd Street plus bike lane
  • 140th Avenue SE, 130’ south of SE 181st Street to south side of SE Petrovitsky Road plus bike lane

King County repairs and resurfaces roadways so roads last longer and are less expensive to maintain. The resurfacing also means fewer potholes and bumps for travelers.

Roads are selected for resurfacing each year based on their condition and on available funding.

Scheduled work dates are weather sensitive and subject to change. Paving will take place mid-July through August 2021.

New in 2021

We will only repave the lanes that need to be repaired. On most roads only the main travel lanes will be repaved. The center turn lanes and shoulders will not be repaved unless they are in poor condition. Repaving the areas that are in the worst condition allows us to repave as many roads as possible without exceeding our yearly paving budget.

Most of the work will occur at night because there is much less traffic on the road during the evening and after dark.

Night work

Daytime lane closures cause significant traffic backups on our roads. Repaving roads at night allows us to keep traffic moving during the day. It also helps us maximize the number of roads we can repave in unincorporated King County by increasing efficiencies at each location.

What to expect during night-time work

Night-time paving work is a moving operation so the noise residents experience will not last long. Contractor crews grind and remove existing pavement one night then return to pave. If there are two lanes, crews will pass through the area at least twice.

King County will provide advance notice to all residents within 500 feet of the work. The County also will place message boards on the roadways approximately 72 hours prior to the start of work.

How will residents stay informed about night work?

  • King County will send postcards to all residents within 500 feet of the work area to alert them to upcoming night paving.

  • King County will keep this website updated with current paving dates. Residents can check this website throughout the summer and into October for information and updates.

  • Residents can sign up to receive King County Road alerts or check Twitter and Facebook.

What else are King County paving contractors doing?

King County contractors will be paving in several local cities and communities including: Lake Forest Park, Normandy Park, Maple Valley, Medina, Yarrow Point, and Beaux Arts Village. Questions about the daytime closures in these local cities/communities should be directed to the local cities.
