SR 305 - Suquamish Way Intersection Improvement


May 2015

  • The SR 305 Suquamish Way Intersection Improvement Project is currently in the design phase.
  • Planning and design work for the right-turn lane is funded.

Why is WSDOT Improving this intersection?
In the 2012 Washington State Transportation Budget, the Legislature included a proviso (pdf 159 kb) directing the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) to identify and design a solution that will alleviate congestion at the SR 305 Suquamish Way intersection located in Kitsap County.

The purpose of the project is to improve mobility while maintaining or improving safety. The project will address issues related to the nearby park and ride lot, the concerns of bicyclists and pedestrians, local business access, residents, and other land users.

The End Result
The end result will complete preliminary engineering of intersection improvements identified in preparation for construction.

Project Benefits
Documentation and analysis information will be incorporated into the NEPA Environmental Process.

Once the intersection improvements are built, motorists using SR 305/Suquamish Way will experience improved traffic mobility and safety.

What is the project timeline?
Aug. 2012 - The project began with data collection, stakeholder input and traffic analysis.            
Dec. 2013 - The planning effort was complete.
Sept. 2014 - A coalition of WSDOT engineers, planners, local elected officials and area stakeholders concluded an effort to identify potential solutions and associated costs for intersection improvements. The report will be finalized by the end of the 2014. Design work will begin on the recommended alternative.
