Kitsap County Transportation Improvement Program Project


Kitsap County Transportation Improvement Program Project
Location Kitsap County Washington
Organization Kitsap Public Health District

The Kitsap Public Health District conducted a health impact assessment (HIA) of the Kitsap County Transportation Improvement Program, which proposed to widen the shoulder on each side of Banner Road, a major artery in South Kitsap, Washington, to improve active transportation infrastructure along the roadway. The HIA informed the county’s funding priorities for the program and built partnerships among the county departments of Public Works and Community Development and the Kitsap Public Health District.

The study was supported by the National Association of County and City Health Officials.
