Road & Signal Maintenance

To extend the life of the roadways, the maintenance crew conducts annual pothole patching, overlaying and other practices. We contract with King County Roads Maintenance for our annual road restriping services, and in areas of significant deterioration and when financially feasible, the City will reconstruct the roadway.

Woodinville currently has 23 traffic signals in addition to various flashing beacon and flashing school zones.  The maintenance and operation of these systems, including programming and inspection, is performed by Snohomish County Signals. Woodinville City staff oversees the maintenance contract and is responsible for responding to resident concerns and complaints.

Potholes and Road Defects

A pothole is a deep pot-shaped hole or depression in a road surface, usually asphalt pavement, where traffic has broken away pieces of the pavement. It is usually the result of water in the underlying soil structure and traffic passing over the affected area and extreme weather conditions. It’s the City’s objective to temporarily repair potholes within a week of receiving a report. Depending on weather conditions and temperatures, a temporary repair may be required, and a permanent repair will be made when weather conditions improve. Crew workloads are a factor in scheduling all repairs.

If you encounter a pothole or road defect, please submit a service request with Woodinville Works or contact the Public Works Department at 425-489-2700 during business hours.
