Project Overview 

The project has three parts; 1. Construct safety improvements at intersections throughout the City (Highway Safety Improvement Project) 2. Constructs a ramp adjacent to the Louis Mentor Boardwalk paid for via an Interlocal Agreement with the Port of Bremerton, and 3. Constructs pedestrian improvements in the vicinity of the State Street Shipyard Pedestrian gate using funds remaining from the Burwell Tunnel Construction project (Navy Safety Project.)   
In December 2014 the City was awarded a HSIP 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 that generally includes new ADA ramps and pedestrian signals, pavement markings and lighting at the following intersections: 
11th & Montgomery 6th & Kitsap Way Burwell & Callow Burwell & Montgomery   
High & Burwell (includes rapid flashing beacon) 
Chester & Burwell (includes rapid flashing beacon and HAWK signal) 
In addition, the City has entered into an Interlocal Agreement with the Port of Bremerton to construct an accessible ramp at the end of Second Street.  In the agreement the city is responsible for the design, and the Port will reimburse all construction costs.
