Transportation committee to address King County road safety
King County road safety will be the focus of the Metro County Council Transportation Committee on Jan. 18, at 9:30 a.m., in Council Chambers on the fourth floor of the King County Courthouse.
County road officials will discuss with the committee what King County is doing to make county roads safer.
Some of the county's current and proposed safety initiatives and programs that will be discussed at Thursday's meeting include:
- An annual roadside hazards inventory and speed limit review;
- Ongoing guardrail and sign enhancements;
- Identification and correction of potential hazards on roads handling large traffic increases before the hazards contribute to accidents.
