Road Services - Highway Safety Program

Second phase of safety improvement projects now underway

King County’s Road Services Division is making safety improvements to 13 roads and six intersections that have a higher-than-average number of collisions. Each of these roads has high traffic volumes and also a high rate of collisions in which vehicles either run off the road or cross the center line. The intersections also have high traffic volumes as well as left-turn- and rear-end-related collisions.

Construction on these projects will generally be done between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. on weekdays, with short-term lane closures and flaggers directing traffic. Motorists should expect minor delays.

The county received a $3.3 million federal grant in 2011 for safety improvements, and completed the first phase of these improvements in late 2013. We began work on the second phase in February 2014, and this work is scheduled to continue through June 2014.
