WSDOT hosts info sessions on SR 305 roundabouts

Traffic flow improvements along the State Route 305 corridor between Poulsbo and the Bainbridge Island ferry terminal will be the focus of a series of information sessions, hosted in North Kitsap by the Washington State Department of Transportation.

According to WSDOT the main feature for the corridor improvements would be the addition of several roundabouts at multiple locations along SR 305. The proposed intersections to receive roundabouts are at Johnson Road, Totten Road, Milepost 7.9 (Masi Shop), Adas Will Lane, Port Madison Road, and Day Road. Transit, bicycle and pedestrian improvements are also planned in conjunction with intersection improvements.

The information sessions will be held:

  • Tuesday, April 9, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Community House, located at 7235 Northeast Parkway in Suquamish.
  • Wednesday, April 10, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at Bainbridge City Hall, located at 280 Madison Ave N. on Bainbridge Island.
  • Thursday, April 11, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at Poulsbo City Hall, located at 200 NE Moe St. in Poulsbo.

WSDOT cites low travel speeds, lack of traffic signals and one-way travel as a few key reasons for the group pursuing roundabouts along the corridor. According to the group, the improvements would reduce collisions, improve traffic flow and eliminate the possibility for t-bone and head-on collisions at intersections receiving the improvements.

WSDOT will also share the information on the corridor improvements and take feedback during an upcoming online open house from Tuesday, April 9, through Thursday, May 9. The online open house can be found at sr305improvements.com.
