Over the next few months WSDOT's consultant Parametrix will conduct traffic analysis of existing and future transportation conditions to aid in the evaluation of the alternatives that are being proposed.
The SR 3 - SR 304 Interchange Improvements Study Working Group meeting was held on Thursday, August 29th at the WSDOT, Port Orchard Office.
Why is WSDOT
studying this interchange?
WSDOT was directed by the Legislature to conduct a feasibility study for interchange improvements to the SR 3 - SR 304 Interchange in Bremerton.
The purpose of this study is to improve mobility during the PM peak commute periods along southbound SR 3 under the SR 304 westbound ramp where the travel lanes narrow down from two to one lane. The resulting congestion increases delay and travel time affecting safety and imposing inconvenience for the traveling public.
This project will advance development of the interchange improvements by beginning the initial environmental documentation, preliminary engineering and design to expedite project delivery.
The End Result
The end result will identify a preferred alternative to advance into the preliminary engineering and design phase of the process.
Project benefits include the advancement of the design, preliminary engineering and right of way acquisition for the preferred alternative.
Once the alternative is implemented, benefits include improved mobility by reducing delay and providing a consistent travel time through the SR 3 - SR 304 interchange while maintaining the safe operation of both SR 3 and SR 304 in the process.
What is the project timeline?
The study phase is expected to be completed by March 2014.
