The Kitsap Public Health District is conducting an HIA of the Kitsap County Transportation Improvement Program, which proposes 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 will inform the county’s funding priorities for the program and build partnerships among the county departments of Public Works and Community Development and the Kitsap Public Health District.

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