Products we offer

King County Road Index maps
King County Road Index maps illustrate the network of roadways maintained by King County. The bold red numbers alongside roads in unincorporated King County represent the Road Log number used to inventory lane miles for taxation purposes. Black and white hard copies of the Road Index maps are available for purchase.

King County Road Standards
The 2007 update of King County Road Standards includes new road design and construction requirements and practices, and complies with current storm water management, environmental policies, state and federal requirements, and the County's Comprehensive Plan. Hard copies of the Road Standards are available for purchase at the Map Counter.

Free trail maps
The Map and Records Center also provides free hard copies of the Regional Trails in King County Map and the Pierce County Bike Map (available while supplies last).

Historic roads-related documents
In addition to the many documents available digitally from our Map Vault, the Map and Records Center maintains a physical collection of GLO field notes and copies of territorial township plat maps, topography maps, inspection books for early road projects and survey field books. Photocopies of these documents are available for purchase at the Map Counter.

Map and Records Center location

The Map and Records Center is located on the first floor of the King Street Center building which is on the east side of Second Avenue between South Jackson and South King Streets. There is limited public parking in the basement of King Street Center just off of South King Street. We do not offer parking validation.
