East 11th and Perry Avenue Complete Streets Improvement Project
East 11th Street and Perry Avenue are important minor arterials in East Bremerton, connecting the Manette Neighborhood Center and the Perry Avenue Neighborhood Center located at the NE Sheridan Road and Perry Avenue intersection.
The East 11th Street portion of the project is within the "Center Core" of the Manette Neighborhood, which is a commercial hub consisting of an attractive environment of small shops, restaurants, and specialty businesses. This area has high pedestrian and bicycle use, is on a Kitsap Transit bus route, and is a City of Bremerton freight route.
Low impact development standards will be utilized to calm traffic.
Reconstruction will consist of removal and replacement of all pavement and sidewalks within the right of way (ROW) with Temporary Construction Easements to enable construction of improvements.
Needs & Benefits
The community has identified the following needs that are to be addressed as part of the project: aging pavement infrastructure, inadequate and substandard sidewalk and curb ramps, inadequate and undersized storm drainage infrastructure, substandard bicycle and pedestrian facilities, lack of water quality facilities, and lack of neighborhood speed control measures.
Due to the types and number of distresses, the City's pavement management plan recommends that East 11th Street and Perry Avenue be reconstructed.
The widened ADA compliant sidewalks, pedestrian scale lighting, bicycle lanes, and sharrows will greatly enhance safety and will have a profound impact on increasing pedestrian and bicycle activity.
Project is in construction and will be complete by the end of 2023.
The project will substantially upgrade East Bremerton's main arterial by fixing existing pavement and sidewalk infrastructure failures and by providing multimodal and safety improvements.
Street trees will be installed on East 11th Street to provide a boulevard feel.
Sharrows and 5-foot-wide bicycle lanes will be provided.
Bicycle lanes will be located on the uphill side of Perry Avenue to provide a "climbing" lane.
Traffic lane width will be generally reduced from 13 to 11 feet for traffic calming.
Sidewalks will be widened by up to two feet over existing widths, where available, within the Right of Way.
Pedestrian scale streetlights will be installed for increased visibility and safety.
