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
“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.
