Project description

This project designs and constructs a roundabout at the intersection of SW 102nd Street and 8th Avenue SW.

Why is King County doing this project?

This project will improve the safety of motorized and non-motorized users in the White Center community, and aligns with the County Executive's priorities of Equity and Social Justice, and Regional Mobility. The White Center Elementary School is located on the northeast corner of the intersection, the White Center Heights Park is on the southeast corner and METRO bus stops for two routes are just north of the intersection. In addition, the intersection is part of a walk to school route for the White Center Heights Elementary School and the Cascade Middle School. These destinations result in regular pedestrian traffic at the intersection. On-site observations by Road Services Division staff indicate that many drivers exhibit unsafe driving behaviors around large numbers of pedestrians -- many of which are students. In addition, congestion at the location during drop off and pick up times for the elementary school also creates a safety concern for pedestrians and other users of the intersection.

Project management phase:  Construction Started

Status as of July 6, 2020

Project substantially complete December 15, 2019. Work to apply sealant to central island will take place in Spring 2020 (1-day).
