West <br />Kitsap Way was originally constructed as State Route 21 in the early 1900s, it has concrete <br />pavement in poor condition and lacks pedestrian and bicycle infrastructure. The study will <br />determine, through a public process, updated road geometry, channelization and a 5-10% level of <br />design for the future reconstruction of the roadway. The total project budget is $606,000 and the <br />grant requires a 13.5% match of local funds. Grant documents are WSDOT standard forms, with <br />terms and conditions specific to the federal fund source. The grant request was submitted as a <br />2023/2024 project but was not selected in the original round of grant awards. However, the <br />project has been selected from the contingency list and funded in 2021 due to regional rebalancing <br />of the PSRC budget. <br />Questions from the public were provided by Ki'aha Lonp; with responses provided by Ms. <br />Ketterer.. <br />
