Transportation

 

 
  • Highway 16 and other highways

This state highway runs northwest to southeast through the approximate center of the Gig Harbor Peninsula from the Kitsap County line to the Tacoma Narrows Bridge. A series of east-west oriented county and city arterial roadways connect the local road network to the highway. Those connecting arterials include 14th Avenue/Stone Drive NW, Olympic Drive NW, Wollochet Drive NW, Burnham Drive NW/Sehmel Drive NW, and State Route 302 (Purdy Drive)

  • Pierce Transit

Transit bus service is provided by Pierce Transit and is oriented primarily to weekday commuters traveling to and from work or school in Tacoma and Seattle. Commuter service picks up and drops off passengers at two park and ride facilities adjacent to State Route 16. (http://www.piercetransit.org/)

  • Bridge/Highway projects

The new Narrows bridge opened to traffic on July 16, 2007, four weeks early and under budget. The new Narrows Bridge is parallel to and south of the 1950 Narrows Bridge. It carries four 11-foot-wide lanes of eastbound traffic toward Tacoma. The left lane is a high-occupancy-vehicle (HOV) lane, the two center lanes are general purpose lanes open to all traffic, and the right lane is an "add/drop" lane that extends across the bridge to the Jackson Avenue exit. In addition, the bridge has a 10-foot right shoulder for disabled vehicles and a 10-foot barrier-separated bicycle/pedestrian lane.  The new Tacoma Narrows Bridge is the first toll facility in western Washington in nearly two decades.(http://www.wsdot.wa.gov/TNBhistory/)

Good To Go passes offer a great  way to avoid toll lines on the new Bridge! (http://www.wsdot.wa.gov/goodtogo/)


  • Passenger Air service

An airport, operated by Tacoma, is located in Gig Harbor which provides private plane service and can service private jets. Commuter service has operated from this airport in the past and no doubt will in the future.  (http://piercecountywa.org/index.aspx?NID=1624)
