What will the overlooks on the new Bucklin Hill Bridge look like?

In Summer 2014, the twin culverts under Bucklin Hill Road in Silverdale will be replaced with a bridge over the Clear Creek estuary. The bridge will also include some overlooks. Kitsap County would like citizen input on certain visual aspects of the overlooks including the layout, wall texture, street furniture, and lighting bollards. Citizens can also help choose the style for the bridge railings.

Please review the choices below and submit your favorites by April 8, 2013.

Bridge Overlook Concept  
Overlooks on the east end of the bridge allow viewing of Clear Creek and the estuary. Due to the available space, the overlook on the north side of the bridge is smaller than the overlook on the south side.

There are three (3) Bridge Overlook concepts to choose from. Each of the choices below show concept pairs for the two sides. Select the concept pair you prefer.
