A memorial sign in unincorporated King County.
The King County Memorial Sign Program strives to help reduce roadway fatalities by creating awareness while also honoring those lost as a result of roadway fatalities.
Citizens can sponsor roadside memorial signs. Each sponsorship includes two signs, two plaques, and two posts, together with the installation and maintenance over a maximum period of two years. The cost of the program is $550, paid by the sponsor.
Sponsors select one of six messages listed below for the primary sign. A secondary plaque will display either "In Memory of" together with the loved one's name or "Sponsored by" together with the loved one's name. The signs and plaques may be placed at two locations near the occurrence of the collision, one positioned for each direction of traffic travel. If the collision occurred at an intersection, the signs are located on the major roadway.
