The project consists of a pavement overlay of Austin Drive from Kitsap Way to Erlands Point Road NW. In addition, the segment of Higbee Road from Austin Drive to the Naval Gate will be overlayed. The project will also improve several curb ramps and include other features to meet ADA accessibility criteria and improve pedestrian safety.
The majority of funding for this project is from the Federal Highway Administration with a match of 13.5% from the City’s Transportation Benefit District.
The City would like to remind residents that the speed limit through the NAD Park is 15-MPH. To help reinforce this, the improvements within the NAD Park will include construction of a speed table and marked crossing of Austin Drive.
Project Status (Updated October 10th, 2016)
The City’s contractor, Puget Paving began improvements to Austin Drive on Monday, September 26th. The road was paved the week of October 17th. Challenging weather conditions that narrowed the paving timeframe caused additional impacts to traffic. We thank the public for their patience as we squeezed the paving between rain storms! Remaining work includes, minor restoration behind new crosswalks, road striping, installation of a speed table and illumination in NAD Park. This work will only require very minor impacts to traffic
