HSIP III - Kitsap Way and Warren Avenue Traffic Signal and Multimodal Safety Project

Current Project Status Update (May 16, 2022)


Work continues on both corridors and the Contractor is maintaining their schedule.  

The pedestrian refuge islands have been poured at Shorewood, the pedestrian crossing between Oyster Bay and National, National, and at 11th and Kitsap Way. Pavement repairs at these locations are tentatively scheduled in the next week, weather permitting. Other work over the next few weeks are completion of the signal improvements for the Warren/Wheaton corridor with the traffic revisions at 6th Street and Sheridan Road.

Project completion is expected by mid-summer.

Traffic Impacts: Expect delays around the work sites with one lane alternating closures and specific closures in some areas. 

Project Overview


In 2018, the City applied for two grants from the Highway Safety Improvement Program; one to improve the bike lanes along Kitsap Way, and a second to improve traffic signals on State Route 303. The City has received funds for both projects, and for simplicity the scope and budget from both projects has been collapsed into a single grant. The total cost of the project is estimated at $2,601,400; total grant funds offered is $2,514,800, and the City’s cost is $86,600 which will be funded by REET.

Timeline/Schedule


Contract award – August 2021
Signal components delivery – January 2022
Construction start – TBD
Construction complete - TBD

Funding


Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP) and City Funding.

Kitsap Way Bike Lanes ($2M project)


  • Location is SR3 to Callow
  • Well-developed concept plans - eliminate sharrows, push all bike lanes adjacent to curb 
  • Mostly re-channelizing, marking bike lanes, green paint at conflict areas especially through intersections
  • Bike signals with detection at signaled intersections
  • Updated signal coordination and timing plans to meet MUTCD timing standards 
  • Potential minor right-of-way acquisition – to be determined during design

SR303 Intersection Safety Improvements ($700K)


  • Improvements at signalized intersections from Burwell  to Furneys (Fred Meyer)
  • Updated signal coordination and timing plans to meet MUTCD timing standards 
  • New signal heads and back plates
  • New Auxiliary signal heads
  • Upgraded ADA push buttons at 6th 
  • Signing and pavement marking improvements

End Result

Signals that are more visible, safer travel for pedestrian at crossings, bicyclists, and improved signal timing on Kitsap Way (SR 310).  Improved signal visibility and travel times on Wheaton Way and Warren Avenue (SR 303).
