About Covington

Covington is a city in King County, Washington, United States. The population was 13,783 at the time of the 2000 census. Prior to the 2000 census, Covington was counted as part of Covington-Sawyer-Wilderness CDP.


The area presently known as Covington was originally known as Jenkins Prairie. In the 1880s, the Northern Pacific Railroad commissioned a surveyor by the name of Covington to develop a railroad line between Auburn and Kanaskat. A stop along the route was named for him and eventually the area surrounding the depot would be called Covington.

Several logging companies set up in the area in the late 19th century, and services soon followed. A school district was established in 1937. Over the years the area grew as an unincorporated area of Kent.

Covington was officially incorporated as a city on August 31, 1997.


The city is governed by a council-manager government consisting of a seven-person city council. Members are elected at-large, i.e., each is elected by all citizens of the city, not by districts.

Covington contracts with the King County Sheriff's Office for police services. Officers assigned to Covington wear uniforms and drive patrol cars marked with the city logo.

Fire protection to most of the city is provided by the Kent Fire Department, while Maple Valley Fire and Life Safety provides fire protection to the remainder of the city.

Public schools in the city are part of the Kent School District.


With its rapid population growth since the city's incorporation, much of the city's income depends on the retail industry. The city's retail core is located along the SR-516 corridor. In 2006, new Covington downtown businesses included a new Wal-Mart, Kohls, Carl's Jr (taking over the former Dairy Queen building), and an Applebees. 2008 brought the newly opened Red Robin, Cutter's Point, Costco, and Home Depot in the new shopping center next to Jenkins Creek Elementary School. Fast growth is expected to continue in the area due to the continued widening and modifications done on State Route 18, a major thoroughfare connecting south King County with Interstate 90. In 2009 there are many more big businesses expected to open, including a UPS Store and Bank of America branch within the Covington Esplande (Home Depot) lot. The company who created the Covington Esplande (Home Depot) center is also interested in creating some new retail space where the woods currently are across from Costco.


Covington is located at 47°21′57″N 122°6′1″W / 47.36583°N 122.10028°W / 47.36583; -122.10028 (47.365780, -122.100213). The city is surrounded by Kent to the west, Auburn to the southwest, and Maple Valley to the east.

According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 5.8 square miles (15.0 km²), of which, 5.8 square miles (14.9 km²) of it is land and 0.04 square miles (0.1 km²) of it (0.69%) is water.


The city's principal arterial is State Route 516, known locally as Southeast 272nd Street, which runs through the city on its west-east route from Des Moines to Maple Valley. The only freeway that passes through the city is State Route 18, which passes through the west side of the city on a northeast-southwest route and, with its connection to Interstate 90 near Snoqualmie, is a major route used by vehicles traveling between south King County and Eastern Washington.

Covington is unique among cities in the area in that it features several roundabouts for traffic control.

Public transportation is provided by King County Metro.
