County seeks road project ideas
Now is the time to pitch your County road project idea

(Port Orchard, WA)  Kitsap County is seeking 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 are selected  for the the 2015–2020 TIP.

Projects are scored and ranked using objective criteria. The criteria includes 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 project, now is the time to have your idea considered. Suggestions for this year’s TIP update are accepted through May 16th.

Submit an idea online at http://www.kitsapgov.com/pw/Tip_Project_Proposal_form.asp.

Complete information about the process, and descriptions of the type of projects considered is available at http://www.kitsapgov.com/pw/sixyear_tip.htm.
