Capacity of County Roads & Infrastructure
Everyday over a million people ride on the nearly 1500 miles of roads and the 182 bridges that connect King County. The King Roads Services division works to keep our roads safe as we connect to work, home, school and places we love.
As our region continues to grow, current budget revenues will need to keep up with ever-increasing demands to our county roads system and supporting networks. Learn more at this Business Briefing on the ballot measure being considered to address budget challenges and opportunities for our county road networks and infrastructure.
