Status update

Friday, September 17, 2021

Crews have completed all of the 2021 pavement resurfacing work in unincorporated King County. We will return to SE North Bend Way and SE Preston-Fall City Road later this fall to install permanent lane striping and rumble strips. The remaining striping and rumble strip work will occur during daytime hours and will have minimal effects on traffic.

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.

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.
