NHUAC meeting on Nov. 1 presents King County Dept. of Transportation speakers

"What to expect this winter and impacts from the diminishing budget" to be discussed

NHUAC press release:

North Highline Unincorporated Area Council invites you to the monthly meeting, Thursday, November 1, 7pm at the North Highline Fire Station (1243 112th Street, SW).

We are pleased to be hosting Brenda Bauer and Jay Osborne from the King County Department of Transportation, who will present an overview of current service delivery and "What to expect this winter and impacts from the diminishing budget."

As noted at previous meetings by the County DOT, and King County Council Member, Joe McDermott at NHUAC's Oct 4 Annexation Forum, the county has moved to a "tiered" level of service for unincorporated area roads. Under this plan, Tier 5 roads, 36 miles of which make up the residential streets in North Highline, will receive "virtually no storm and snow response. Maintenance will be limited and based on factors such as life safety and risk, resulting is a growing number of deteriorating roads. Users can expect to see some closures...these
roads may also be downgraded to a gravel surface.."

Information on the new service levels can be found on the North Highline Unincorporated Area Council website,www.northhighlineuac.org. Follow the link to the DOT site and then the link under "Service Tiers."

Hope to see you all there as we learn more about how this plan will impact our community.
