Status update

September 22, 2022

Construction for pavement resurfacing on Myers Way S is underway. Cedar Grove Rd. SE has been scheduled for October. Both locations will have lane restrictions. Find more details on both locations below:

  • Myers Way S is scheduled for Wednesday, Sept. 21 through Thursday, Sept. 22. No paving Friday, Sept. 23 due to possible rain. Paving operations will resume on Saturday, Sept. 24 and then again on Monday, Sept. 26 through Monday, Oct. 3 (weekdays). This work is scheduled to be done during daytime hours.
  • Cedar Grove Rd. SE is scheduled for Monday, Oct. 17 through Saturday, Oct. 22, 2022. This work is scheduled to be done during overnight hours.
    • Loud grinding machines must grind each lane before crews can repave the road. Neighbors can expect to hear the machines nightly on Cedar Grove Rd. SE

Both locations are weather dependent and could be postponed due to rain. Get real-time updates about these lane restrictions on kingcounty.gov/MyCommute

Project overview

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.

What to expect in 2022

Most of the work will occur during the day, however a few high-traffic locations will be done at night when there is less traffic on the road.

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. We will only repave the lanes that need to be repaired. Repaving the areas that are in the worst condition allows us to repave as many roads as possible without exceeding our yearly paving budget.

Night work

Some of the work will be done during the evening and at night. 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 and Maple Valley. Questions about the daytime closures in these local cities/communities should be directed to the local cities.
