Why is WSDOT
enhancing bicycle access on the Hood Canal Bridge?
In June 2009, WSDOT completed the east-half replacement project on the SR 104 Hood Canal Bridge. The new east-half was designed and constructed with 8-foot-wide shoulders that include 3-foot-wide plates over the bridge’s grated steel decking. These plates facilitate bicyclists use of the bridge.
Since the bridge reopened, WSDOT has worked closely with the local bicycling community on the Kitsap and Olympic peninsulas, and has identified funding to enhance the shoulders for pedestrians and cyclists.
The End Result
Enhanced shoulders will improve the experience for pedestrians and bicyclists that use the SR 104 Hood Canal Bridge.
• Safety. Enchanced shoulders allow bicyclists and pedestrians more room between the adjacent bridge barrier and the grated bridge deck.
