Gateway median landscape project work to run through early November

Traffic will be impacted with lane closures on weekdays between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m.

Construction on the State Route 304 Gateway Median Landscape Project in Bremerton began yesterday and will run through early November, weather permitting.

The project will remove overgrown vegetation and dead trees from the median of SR 304, from SR 3 to 1st Street, and will replace the vegetation with lower maintenance river rock, according to the City of Bremerton. The first phase of the project (from SR 3 interchange to Charleston Beach Road.) was completed in 2018.

The City of Bremerton agreed to solicit bids for construction of the remaining segments in order to complete the project in 2019. Requests for bids were solicited from the small works roster to construct the landscape improvements, according to a press release from the city. Two bids were received and Vet Industrial submitted the lowest responsive and responsible bid. Bremerton City Council awarded the contract to Vet Industrial Sept. 25.

Traffic will be impacted by lane closures on east and westbound SR 304 between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. on weekdays. Travelers should expect delays during these hours and consider alternate routes if possible.
