In June 2017, the City received a $1,750,000 Safe Routes to School Grant to install a sidewalk along Harlow Drive from Kitsap Way to Osprey Circle. In addition to the sidewalks, lighting, school speed zone signs, and crosswalk treatments will be installed. The new sidewalk will provide a safe route for children to walk to Kitsap Lake Elementary and vastly improve the walkability of the Kitsap Lake neighborhood.
The City of Bremerton Public Works and Utilities will introduce and discuss its 2018 construction program at a community meeting on Tuesday, January 9, 2018. The meeting will be held in the Council Chambers on the first floor of the Norm Dick Government Center at 345 6th Street, Bremerton from 6:00pm – 8:30pm. The Kitsap Lake Safe Routes to School project will be discussed.
