New service levels for King County Roads - What you should know as a resident of North Highline


King County Roads has implemented new criteria for determining maintenance on existing roads in unincorporated King County. The following link describes the 5 tiers of service levels. When you check the map you will see that many of the roads in North Highline are Tier 5.

Tier 5 — Least reliable access
Tier 5 roads carry 10% of the County road system's total daily trips. Features: Local residential roads that have alternative routes available for travel in case of road closures.
Service: Will receive virtually no storm and snow response. Maintenance will be limited and based on factors such as life safety and risk, resulting in a growing number of deteriorating roads. Users can expect to see some closures, which may result in longer detours and difficulty accessing property. These roads may also be downgraded to a gravel surface, restricted to one lane, and have load limits and lower speed limits.

Unincorporated King County to see few snowplows this winter

King County will plow only 10 percent of its road miles during snowfalls this winter, a casualty of a continuing decline in the county roads budget .

North Highline Graffiti Management Program

Graffiti is a crime. It is costly and destructive and sends a message that the community is not concerned about the appearance of its neighborhoods. It generates neighborhood fear, causes instability, signals an increase in crime, lowers property values, hurts business revenue, it s economically detrimental to our community, and is a sign of urban decay.

By covering the graffiti as soon as possible, you rob the vandal of the effort and time it took to do the tag, and most likely they will move on to another location. You can prevent your property from becoming a "know tag site" by removing graffiti immediately.

The North Highline Unincorporated Area Council provides paint and paint supplies for free to residents and business owners. We can also paint out the graffiti on your property free as a community service. You must be the property owner or authorized to sign a release waiver.

If you have questions concerning NHUAC's Graffiti Management Program please contact us at graffiti@northhighlineuac.org.

King County Regional Automated Fingerprint Identification System (AFIS)

AFIS provides criminal identification services to officers, investigators, prosecutors, and corrections staff.  Program staff fingerprint and identify all inmates booked into county jails.  This helps to identify possible wanted or dangerous offenders before they are released, even if they provide false names and incorrect information.  Staff also recover and process fingerprints from major crime scenes.  The AFIS Program’s existence aids in solving crimes throughout King County, and contributes to the safety of both officers and citizens. 

The AFIS website is www.kingcounty.gov/afis and includes the annual report, videos, and other information.


KC Metro Zone Boundary Line

The NHUAC has requested that KC Metro review it's policy regarding the southern Zone Boundary, currently SW Roxbury (SW96th). The northern Zone Boundary is at 145th North. We have requested that they move the southern boundary to the Burien Park and Ride (148th SW) which would make a trip from North Highline to Seattle a one zone ride. Click here to see our letter. And this is their response.
