Hear from Congressman Derek Kilmer and other local leaders as they fill us in on the current work being done by the Gorst Coalition.
Over a year ago, a group of diverse community partners from Kitsap and Mason Counties including the U.S. Navy and local Chambers of Commerce came together to formulate the Gorst Coalition, with the goal to bring Federal and State resources to address the longstanding needs of the Gorst Corridor.
The Members of the Gorst Coalition recognized the urgent needs to relieve severe traffic congestion, make needed safety improvements, provide resiliency from sea level rise and seismic events, support vital National Security objectives and reduce our impacts on the Gorst Corridor ecosystem. The Coalition builds on previous community efforts to come together to address this generational transportation project. Working in partnership with Federal, State, local and Tribal governments along with community organizations, labor unions and businesses, we are seeking $457 million from the State Legislature to fund this project.
