Viking Avenue is classified as a Principal Arterial. The corridor provides links from Poulsbo to Silverdale and Bainbridge Island. Currently, Viking Avenue reduces its cross section to two lanes from five and three lanes in these two sections. The roadway has no sidewalks or bike lanes. The proposed project will improve mobility and safety along this corridor. Phase II of the project consists of the intersection of NW Lindvig Way and Viking Avenue, and the segment of Viking Avenue from the McDonalds restaurant to SR 305. The improvements along Viking Avenue include a continuous two-way left turn lane extending from the north terminus of the project to a point approximately 500 feet north of the south terminus of the project, bike lanes, drainage improvements, and curb and sidewalk on both sides of the road. The improvements at the intersection consist of improved channelization by adding a left-turn lane on Finn Hill Road.
Phase IIIA of the project will construct bike lanes, curbs, gutter and sidewalks along a segment of Viking Avenue from Bovela Lane to a point approximately 1,000 feet south of Bovela Lane. It will also construct approximately 740-ft of continuous left turn lane, and stormwater collection and treatment system. The phase III B includes extension of the Phase III A improvements to SCL. The improvements will enhance level of service, provide non-motorized facilities, and will extend a previously completed phase of improvements.
Why are we Building This Project?
Add center turn lane to improve capacity and level of service and reduce risk of accidents. Repair degraded pavement for asset management and to preserve transportation system. Rechannelize intersection to improve level of service and reduce accidents. Add bike lanes and sidewalks to improve non motorized transportation and improve pedestrian safety.
