Highway Safety Improvements Phase 2 and Puget Sound Navy Gate Sidewalk

Project Status (Updated October 11, 2018)

The City’s Contractor has been installing push buttons and pedestrian displays at the project intersections over the past couple of weeks. Next week the RRFB at High and Burwell and the HAWK Signal at Chester and Burwell will be installed. Installation should take about a week to complete, and should be operational shortly thereafter. The work will require lane closures in each direction; please expect delays or look for alternate routes. Additionally, the Contractor has completed all of the flat work for this project. The City anticipates this project should be complete in October.

Project Overview

In December 2014 the City was awarded a Highway Safety Improvement Grant to construct safety improvements at 6 intersections throughout the city. Subsequent to receipt of the grant award, the project scope was revised due to redundant scope with the WSDOT ADA ramp construction on Wheaton Way. The project will construct improvements which include new ADA ramps and pedestrian signals, pavement markings and lighting at the following intersections:  

11th & Montgomery
6th & Kitsap Way
Burwell & Callow
Burwell & Montgomery
Chester & Burwell 
High & Burwell

In addition, the City will complete pedestrian improvements in the vicinity of the State Street Shipyard Pedestrian gate using funds remaining from the Burwell Tunnel Construction project.
