County seeks road project ideas

Pitch your road project idea to Kitsap County.
Kitsap County is asking for road project ideas and suggestions to be included in the six-year Transportation Improvement Program (TIP).
Each year, Kitsap County Public Works completes a transportation project selection process. This year’s process determines which new roadway projects will be selected to be included in the 2010–15 TIP.
Projects are scored and ranked using objective criteria. The criteria include safety and/or capacity needs, structural condition, environmental retrofits and non-motorized needs. Projects are selected based on the availability and timing of funding, especially for state and federally funded programs. The project selection process and TIP update happens only once each year. Suggestions for this year’s TIP update will be accepted through April 20.
Submit your idea online at http://www.kitsapgov.com/pw/sixyear_tip.htm. Complete information about the process and descriptions of the type of projects considered also are available on the site.
