Check out WSDOT's new folio
that explains its recommendation to move forward on designing a separated right-turn lane from westbound SR 305 to northbound Suquamish Way. The folio also discusses the benefits of a separated right-turn lane improvement.
Planning and design work for the right-turn lane is funded; no construction funds have been identified yet.
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. Note: Construction funding for this project has yet to be identified.
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.
The project benefit will be a project ready to seek construction funding. 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?
The project began August 2012 with data collection, stakeholder input and traffic analysis. The planning effort is scheduled for completion in late 2013 and the design work is scheduled to begin in spring 2014.
