NW Greaves Way Nears Completion
Ceremony to celebrate the NW Greaves Way (Waaga Way extension) to be held.

(Port Orchard, WA) – The Kitsap County Board of Commissioners together with Randy Casteel, Public Works Director is pleased to announce a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the newly constructed NW Greaves Way (Waaga Way Extension) on Monday, November 16, 2009. The ceremony, beginning at 12:30 p.m., takes place at the intersection of NW Greaves Way and Clear Creek Road.

“We’re excited to introduce our latest accomplishment to the public” said Jacques Dean, Kitsap County Construction Manager. “This new road improves traffic flow and will reduce congestion in Silverdale by allowing motorists to bypass the Bucklin Hill and Silverdale Way area.”

The largest item of work remaining, which delays the actual opening of the roadway, is completion of the traffic control signal at the intersection of Clear Creek and NW Greaves Way. The majority of the signal components are installed, however, one of the mast arms was damaged in shipment and must be repaired. A repair procedure is in place, but will take a couple of weeks for the repair to be completed, and wiring and system testing to take place. Other pending work on the project consists of finishing the sidewalk construction, landscape planting, and performing trimming and clean up work in the project area. The roadway is slated to open to traffic during the 2nd week in December.

The Silverdale Circulation Study, completed in 1998, identified the potential benefit for a new road connecting the SR 3/SR 303 interchange with Old Frontier Road.
