Austin Drive Pavement Preservation

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 contractor is wrapping up work on the crosswalk curb ramps at the intersections of Austin Drive and Olding, Bye, and Higbee Roads, and at the Erland’s Point Apartments entrances. Pavement grinding and repair is ongoing, and the pavement overlay will follow closely. Weather permitting, work will be completed before the end of October.
