This past week the City of Bainbridge Island was presented an Award of Excellence for the Winslow Way street reconstruction project. The project was selected 2013 Best City Project by the Washington State Department of Transportation and the Washington division of the Federal Highways Administration. The award was presented by Kathleen Davis, WSDOT’s Director of the Highways and Local Programs office, who said the project stood out for its innovation and sustainable design. SvR’s design for the street incorporated green stormwater infrastructure systems including stormwater planters, bioretention swales, and Silva Cells and emphasized community values by providing wider sidewalks, gathering areas, bike facilities and site amenities to support overall accessibility. The reconstructed street has once again made Winslow Way a valued community destination at the center of Bainbridge Island.
