King County International Airport-Boeing Field is undertaking an “Adopt-A-Road” project along Airport Way South.
StoryKing County International Airport-Boeing Field in partnership with the King County Sheriff's Office, Sound Transit, and the cities of Seattle and Tukwila are undertaking an “Adopt-A-Road” project along Airport Way South. This Wednesday, Dec. 4 at 9:30 a.m., representatives from these organizations will meet at the arrivals building at the airport, 7277 Perimeter Road S. Airport staff and executives will lead the cleanup effort starting at 10 a.m.
King County Airport formally adopted Airport Way, which runs along the east side of the airfield, via the City of Seattle's Adopt-A-Road program. The City of Tukwila, which does not have a formal ”Adopt-A-Road” program, is supporting the effort since a portion of Airport Way runs through Tukwila.
“Airport Way is the road to our airport. Why wouldn’t we want our own front porch to look as nice as possible?” said John Parrott, director of King County International Airport. “Our employees are proud of our commitment to the Georgetown neighborhood and of our airfield.”
The King County Sheriff’s Office, which provides police and fire services for the airport, will help with roadway safety during the event. The “Adopt-A-Road” program encourages at least two clean-up efforts per year for the adopted areas. Future clean-up projects are expected in early spring.
