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

Status

April 2014

  • This project will go out to bid April 14, 2014.
  • The design office is working with utility companies to relocate utilities affected by this project. 

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 may include widening portions of the road, adding left-turn pockets, widening shoulders, increasing sight distance and access consolidation. Other improvements planned are 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 and right turns, and emergency pullouts at key locations.

Congestion - Improved traffic flow along the corridor.

What is the project timeline?

  • Construction is expected to begin in the summer of 2014.
