Project description

To identify and prioritize existing guardrail to be refurbished or upgraded to current standards.

Why is King County doing this project?

The division's top priority in the 2014 Strategic Plan for Road Services is to address safety concerns on the roadway network. This program will improve the safety of the system by upgrading existing guardrail and guardrail end terminals. This includes identifying and replacing existing end terminals that do not meet current standards. This project will also install guideposts on the guardrail according to federal standards. Other work includes raising guardrail to current standard height recommended by WSDOT Design Standards. Upgrading existing guardrail and guardrail end terminals will make the roads safer and may lessen the severity of crashes.
