PENINSULA: State looking at future of Route 104


KINGSTON — Traffic congestion occurs regularly between the Hood Canal Bridge and the Kingston ferry dock, and it’s going to get a lot worse in the next few decades.

That’s why planners with the Washington State Transportation Department are rolling out ideas now to address the long-range issues. Vicki I. Steigner, transportation system planning engineer, and other staff members held an open house in Kingston this week to display some of the ideas.

The same planners will hold open houses June 7 at 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Bay Club, 120 Spinnaker Place, Port Ludlow, and June 14 at 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the WSU Community Learning Center, 201 W. Patison, Port Hadlock.

A 57-member steering committee — made up of environmental, business, transportation, community, government and tribal representatives — has been meeting for nearly three years to develop proposals to resolve congestion and safety problems along State Route 104 from its intersection with U.S. Highway 101 in Jefferson County to the Kingston ferry dock in Kitsap County.
