Above are pictures of the damage
March 26th Updates
Installation of safety fence at embankment stabilization project site has been completed. Contractor for additional drainage work, is scheduled to begin March 30th. Additional work to reduce or eliminate further storm water runoff includes installing five (5) culverts, improving ditches, installing outfall sleeves on cross pipes, and water bars at the top of the trail. The evaluation of expanding the existing parking continues. Public Works began survey work of Millihanna Road.

Kitsap County and the Millihanna Road residents are near agreement and resolution to the public use of the private road accessing Anderson Point County Park. Public use of the road will be limited to daytime use only, consistent with Parks Department standard practice. Under the proposed agreement, Kitsap County Parks Department will assume responsibility for operation and maintenance of the gate off Banner Road. The opening and closing of the gate will correspond with park hours. Improvements to Millihanna Road will be phased through the coming year and is contingent upon favorable weather conditions. Completion of the work is expected to require the temporary closure of Millihanna Road (and also the Park), but the work will be scheduled to minimize closures.
 
October 2014 - Anderson Point Embankment Repair Project – Contract Award - The Board of County Commissioners expedited the award of the Anderson Point County Park construction contract for the repair of the embankment. The timing of the award provided nearly an extra week head start and allowed for the department to issue a letter to proceed to Sealevel Bulkhead Builders, Inc., of Poulsbo which was provided October 1st.

November 18, 2013 Anderson Point County Park Closure
The 66 acre park site off Millihanna Road, was closed due to landslides and washouts created by the severe storms of late 2010. The site is well known to walkers, and provides access to a saltwater beach, and, historically, has experienced interior road washouts. Since late 2010, Kitsap County has been unable secure funding from outside sources such as FEMA and Washington State Recreation and Conservation Office to offset projected costs to repair the areas and stabilize the land.

Kitsap County hosted a community meeting on November 7 to present details of the closure of Anderson Point Park. Kitsap County Commissioner Charlotte Garrido and County Park officials attended to hear comments, answer questions, and present an update to the scope of repairs that are necessary to re-open the park.

Kitsap County has retained N.L. Olson & Associates, Port Orchard, to provide geotechnical engineering services at Anderson Point County Park in Olalla. The services will include a geotech report, securing a drilling subcontractor, laboratory analysis, and a recommendation report for slide repair, minor road improvements in areas piping was observed during a recent field visit, and delineation of surface runoff areas. The drilling subcontractor is schedule to be at the site December 4, 2013.

This page will be used to provide updates on the status of the geotechnical assessments and updates associated with the park. Geotech recommendations and reports will be linked to this page as well. The matrix represents the written public comments provided at the November 7th meeting. Public comments will continue to be received at parks@co.kitsap.wa.us . The matrix will be updated weekly.
