Road Services - Current paving projects

For budget year 2014

Asphalt overlay

In these projects, King County applies a layer of asphalt on top of the existing road surface. This smooths out the road surface and prevents potholes and other deterioration. It also helps preserve the underlying road bed. Our yearly overlay program repairs roads based on their condition and on available funding.

Maintenance crews prepare the road for fresh asphalt by grinding down the existing surface and repairing the road base where needed. A contractor paves the road, applying enough asphalt to create a level driving surface. We then add striping, reflectors, or rumble strips as needed to guide traffic safely.

The county has contracted for about 13 miles of paving this year. Due to a significant decrease in funding that began after the recession, we have cut back on the amount of paving we do each year. In 2010, for comparison, we paved 40 miles. As stewards of the county's road system, we estimate that our best practice would be to repave about 55 miles of roadway each year to keep the county road system in its current state.
