Public Hearing: Shine Road Proposed Speed Limit Reduction

Following a citizen petition to reduce the speed limit on Shine Road from 35 mph to 25 mph, Jefferson County Public Works conducted a thorough traffic study and is moving forward with the proposed speed limit reduction. The petition, which was submitted to the Jefferson County Board of Commissioners on Aug 6, 2018, included signatures from 100 residents. Among the concerns listed were the narrow road width, recreational pedestrian use, and traffic during Hood Canal Bridge closures.

A public hearing to discuss the Shine Road speed limit reduction will be held on Nov. 19, 2018 at 10:30 a.m. in the Commissioners’ Chambers at the Jefferson County Courthouse, 1820 Jefferson St, Port Townsend. Written public comment will be accepted by mail or email anytime through the close of the public hearing, addressed to the BoCC at PO Box 1220, Port Townsend, WA 98368 or at jeffbocc@co.jefferson.wa.us. The full Shine Road 2018 traffic report is available here. Call Jefferson County Public Works at 360-385-9160 or email pubworks@co.jefferson.wa.us with questions.
