Notice to King County Bike Map users
The online King County Bike Map has been discontinued. We apologize that the county is not currently able to provide and maintain this resource.
The Road Services Division has discontinued the bike map because we no longer have traffic engineers and planners who can analyze, recommend, and update bike routes. Road Services, which manages the road system in unincorporated King County, has been experiencing a serious funding crisis over the past several years, resulting in elimination of over 40 percent of our workforce. This included the staff who maintained the bike map. While the economy has shown signs of recovery, it will be years before the tax base for roads funding returns to pre-recession values in real terms. In 2015 – 2016, Road Services’ budget is focused on critical safety work and a limited amount of road maintenance and preservation activities. We have had to make difficult business decisions to eliminate other valued services, such as the bike map, that are not sustainable at this point in time.
If you are interested in more information about the roads funding situation and our business planning, please see our Strategic Planning webpage.
The county is also sponsoring a task force to explore solutions for maintaining and preserving the aging bridge and road system in unincorporated King County. More information is available at the Bridges and Roads Task Force webpage.
