The next milestone for the project is during the March 3 study session. City Council will consider approval of the final design of the project. If the project is approved, then a design contract and budget amendment will be presented to Council at a meeting in March and construction will begin in summer 2021.
The Sportsman Club and New Brooklyn Road Intersection is located just outside the Winslow area and adjacent to many walkable destinations.
As congestion increases, the City of Bainbridge Island is considering a roundabout that would enhance facilities for those who walk and bike and serve as a hub for connecting sidewalks and walking paths in the vicinity.
All legs of the intersection will include:
Improved multi-use paths: An expanded, 10-foot wide multi-use sidewalk or separated trail with ramps for bicyclists who choose not to travel with vehicles in the right of way of the roundabout.
Raised crosswalks: ADA accessible ramps and raised concrete crosswalks with rapid-flashing beacons for safe crossings
Upgraded shoulders: Wide, paved shoulders for bicyclists on both sides of the road within the city right of way
Traffic calming approaches: Curved approaches with narrowed lanes to slow down vehicles to the 20-mph design speed
Hardscaped improvements: Enhanced lighting and separation between the crosswalks and the roundabout to improve pedestrian visibility and traffic flow
Up to 36 trees larger than 12 inches in diameter will need to be removed on the north and west sides to accommodate the roundabout. The City is considering how retaining walls and the careful design of pathways could preserve some of these existing trees and reduce tree removal. New landscaping and trees will be planted at each corner of the roundabout and within the center islands.
