Road Services Division Capital Improvement Program (CIP)

212th Avenue SE Flood Risk Reduction Project

Project No.:  1127590
Project limits:  212th Avenue SE, at SE 384th Street
Project type:  Flood/Storm
Thomas Bros. Map No.:  777G5

Project description

To install an underground overflow conveyance system on 212th Avenue SE, at SE 384th Street about two and a half miles southwest of Black Diamond, to alleviate routine flooding.

Why is King County doing this project?

Between SE 384th Street and SE 388th Street, the road bisects a ponded, Category 2 wetland. It also intersects with two agricultural drainage ditches. These drainage ditches are hydraulically connected to Newaukum Creek, a tributary to the Green River. During rain events, about 1,100 linear feet of the south bound lane of 212th Avenue SE becomes flooded and is subsequently closed as a result of clogged ditches and the road’s close proximity to the ponded wetland.
 

Project management phase:  Construction Completed

Status as of February 15, 2019

Construction completed. Will install mitigation plantings this fall/winter.
