Project Overview


The City and WSDOT have launched a comprehensive study of the SR 303 (Warren/Wheaton) corridor. The study, using the practical solutions approach, will look at the corridor from Burwell Street to McWilliams, with particular focus on the segments of the corridor within city limits. The study will recommend safe, reliable, and cost effective transportation options that support livability, investment, and economic vitality for people and businesses.   

Check out this short video from WSDOT about the practical solutions approach:

Study Progress and Schedule


The study is currently in full swing and the technical team, led by engineering consultant Parametrix, has put together a list of proposed projects to improve the SR 303 Corridor. The list, called the draft preferred alternative, is in the process of being presented to stakeholders, City Council, and the public for comment. The draft preferred alternative was developed by the study team with guidance from the Stakeholder Advisory Group and public feedback and is made up of projects that survived two rounds of qualitative evaluation and have been found to meet the needs of the corridor. The study team will utilize comments from the public to tweak the draft preferred alternative and finalize the study report over the course of the next couple of months.   
 
Here are some tasks that our technical team has completed:
  • Existing and 2040 traffic analysis
  • Existing conditions survey
  • Baseline economic assessment
  • Safety analysis
  • Solutions and alternatives development
  • Develop an evaluation matrix (for testing the effectiveness of the alternatives)
  • Completed the evaluation of alternatives
  • Develop a draft preferred alternative
Here are some tasks that our Stakeholders Advisory Group has accomplished:
  • Established a purpose and need statement
  • Reviewed first level screening of potential corridor elements (i.e. solutions or projects)
  • Reviewed corridor alternatives and approved alternatives for second level screening
  • Reviewed and approved the second level screening matrix
  • Reviewed and commented on the alternative evaluation results
  • Review and comment on the draft preferred alternative
Stakeholders Advisory Group (SAG)
The SAG was selected from the large pool of groups, people, and agencies that have a stake in the SR 303 corridor and their purpose is to provide guidance and oversight for the study and study management team. SAG members are: Greg Wheeler, Mayor; Leslie Daugs, Councilor - Council District #2; Richard Warren, WSDOT; Ariel Birtley, Olympic College; Lynn Wall, Naval Base Kitsap; Ed Coviello, Kitsap Transit; David Forte, Kitsap County, Denise Frey, Bremerton Chamber of Commerce; and Megan Moore, Kitsap County Health District.

Materials available at SAG meetings will be posted to this website, and the public is encouraged to comment on those materials using the SR 303 Corridor Study Comment Form.

Community Outreach
Below is a quick rundown of the outreach that we’ve completed to date:
  • Online survey in 2018
  • Corridor outreach in April 2019 at locations along SR 303 
  • Information booth at Bridging Bremerton 2019 
  • In person open house in August 2019  
  • Online open house in August 2019
  • Online open house in May 2020.
A summary of comments gathered can be reviewed here

The project team will continue to listen to the community’s issues and suggestions for SR 303, and will include a summary of public feedback in the final study report. Your ideas will help us develop a corridor improvement plan.
