Sign Changes Planned Where Highways Merge

March 24th, 2006 by sitedude

The in basket: Colleen Taylor e-mails to say that as one drives north on Highway 303 near Silverdale with intentions to got north on Highway 3, the destination signs list SubBase Bangor as the only place to which it leads. It also says EXIT ONLY, as if it were the only location/destination on the highway for that direction. 
“Nothing is listed for Poulsbo, the Kingston ferry, or the later exit for Bainbridge. Anyone not familiar with the area would be clueless as to how to reach those destinations, given the lack of signage.

“Are any plans in the works to change that and list these areas?” she asked.
The out basket: Nothing immediate, but the Olympic Region for state highways says the reconstruction of the interchange there this year and next will correct it and provide new guide signs. “The new signing on SR 303 giving guidance onto SR 3 will read ‘SR 3 NORTH, Bangor & Poulsbo,’ their reply said.
