County seeks road project ideas

Now is the time to pitch your road project idea to Kitsap County

Port Orchard, WA — Kitsap County is asking for road project ideas and suggestions to be included in the 6-year Transportation Improvement Program (TIP). Each year Kitsap County Public Works completes a transportation project selection process.  This year’s process determines which new roadway projects will be selected to be included in the 2010 – 2015 TIP.

Projects are scored and ranked using objective criteria. The criteria include safety and/or capacity needs, structural condition, environmental retrofits, and non-motorized needs.  Projects are selected based on the availability and timing of funding, especially for State and Federally funded programs.  The project selection process and TIP update happens only once each year.  If you have a suggestion for a road project, now is the time to speak up. Suggestions for this year’s TIP update are accepted through April 20th.

Submit your idea online at http://www.kitsapgov.com/pw/sixyear_tip.htm. Complete information about the process, and descriptions of the type of projects considered, are also available there. Call Kitsap One (360-337-5777) if you have questions.
