Two virtual open houses on traffic safety improvements at four locations around Bainbridge Island will take place in an effort to slow down traffic and improve conditions for people walking, biking or rolling in neighborhoods.

The open houses will provide the community an opportunity to share experiences, concerns or ideas for addressing speed and non-motorized safety at each location and hear feedback on potential solutions.

The City Council authorized Public Works staff to begin preliminary analysis of the four areas below for traffic calming and safety improvements. Those areas are:

*Open House 1: June 9 at 4 p.m. on Zoom, Grow Avenue (between Winslow Way and High School Road) and Schel Chelb pedestrian crossing (Point White Drive)

Open House 2: June 16 at 4 p.m. on Zoom, Grand Forest pedestrian crossing (Miller Road) and Finch corridor intersections (between Wyatt Way and High School Road)

Also, staff is seeking ideas that will improve safety in other neighborhoods. These safety enhancements may include physical designs or radar speed signs to reduce vehicle speeds. The city is using an interactive web tool that allows people to pinpoint the areas of concerns and submit ideas for projects. Proposals may be submitted through July 16.
