Speed limit reduction proposed for part of Patriot Way SE

Patriot-way-mapKing County is proposing to reduce the speed limit on a 1,250-foot segment of Patriot Way SE near Renton in 2018. After receiving public comments about speeding within the Briarwood Elementary School zone on Patriot Way SE, the county conducted a speed limit evaluation to analyze the issue.

Based on the findings of the evaluation, the county concluded that a speed limit reduction is justified from 30 to 25 mph between SE 128th Street and SE 132nd Street. If approved, the speed reduction is anticipated to take place in the late summer/early fall of 2018.

Public comment is being accepted on this speed limit reduction proposal through September 5, 2018.
