Anderson Point County Park Closure Updates
SE Millihanna Road, Olalla
Above are pictures of the damage
April 17th Updates
Drainage work to reduce or eliminate further storm water runoff within the park is 80% completed. Tasks include installing five (5) culverts, improving ditches, installing outfall sleeves on cross pipes, and water bars at the top of the trail. Construction of the safety fencing within the restoration area has been completed. Parks staff received quote for the possible, future expansion of the parking lot.

Temporary construction easements have been granted for the preliminary road grading and drainage work. Improvements to Millihanna Road will be phased through the year, contingent upon 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.

Once the park is opened, public use of the road will be limited to daytime use only, consistent with Parks Department standard practice. 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.
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.

The drilling subcontractor is schedule to be at the site December 4, 2013.
