Project Information

SR 302 - Key Peninsula Highway to Purdy Vicinity - Safety & Congestion


August 2014

  • Construction will begin Aug. 18, 2014.
  • The project was awarded to Tucci & Sons, Inc. July 15, 2014.


Why is WSDOT improving safety and congestion on SR 302 between Key Peninsula Highway and SR 16?
This section of SR 302 experiences congestion at specific locations and a high rate of collisions. 

To reduce congestion and the potential for collisions, WSDOT is developing improvements for key locations such as the 118th intersection. 

These improvements include widening portions of the road, adding left-turn pockets, widening shoulders, increasing sight distance and access consolidation. Other improvements include removing trees and other hazards within the right of way, constructing several emergency pullouts, and placement of gravel to improve abrupt shoulder edges.

The End Result
Specific improvements at key locations will reduce congestion and improve safety by reducing the frequency and severity of collisions.

Project Benefits
Safety - Improved sight distance along the corridor, removal of fixed objects within the right of way, new turn pockets to facilitate left turns, and emergency pullouts at key locations.

Congestion - Improved traffic flow along the corridor.

What is the project timeline?

  • Construction is expected to begin August 2014.
  • The project is expected to be complete by fall 2014.
