The Wheaton Way Transit Center was designed to be a modern, environmentally-friendly, and reliable transit hub for the Bremerton community. This project improved transit access and reliability, promoted ridership, reduced congestion on SR 303, provides better waiting experience for riders, and ultimately reduces vehicle miles traveled while expanding the growth of transit. The scope of the project included a new eight-bay Bus Transfer Center, a 162-stall park-and-Ride Lot, expansive and iconic canopy cover, ADA accessible curb ramps, stormwater treatment facilities, illumination and surveillance systems, bus shelters, and a building for a driver comfort station.
Perteet’s team managed all aspects of the contract, representing Kitsap Transit’s interests on this Federal Transit Authority and State Regional Mobility Grant funded project. This included change management, construction administration, documentation, field oversight of contractor, materials testing, and design support services for the project. Early in the start of the construction phase, Perteet took on the role of managing the relocation of private utilities, WSDOT signal warrant updates, and ROW compliance. The team also effectively developed solutions with the contractor on their permit fee responsibilities, the handling and disposal of unanticipated contaminated soils, subcontractor qualifications, and NPDES requirements.
