Illahee Road storm drainage and road improvement project begins April 8

(Port Orchard, WA) - During inspections of the stormwater system by county staff, the pipe in this area was found to be deteriorated and in need of replacement. This project will replace 2,000 feet of pipe, install 11 catch basins, and perform pavement maintenance. The project area for this storm drainage system upgrade is from Ocean View Blvd. to Wise St. Following installation of the new storm pipe and catch basins, Illahee Road will receive a new asphalt overlay.

Motorists can expect delays. The construction area includes a one lane closure assisted by flaggers. Construction crews will maintain access to driveways; however, anticipate short delays, dust and noise during daytime construction periods.

The project begins April 8 and is expected to be completed by late June. The bid was awarded to Sound Excavation, Inc. of Bremerton. The total project cost is $425,000 and is funded by Kitsap County Roads Division and the Surface and Stormwater Management.

“This is a busy construction season for the County” says Jacques Dean, Kitsap County Construction Manager. “The public will see four more projects begin construction by late June”. Construction is expected to begin in May at the Miami Beach Road Bridge and on Bucklin Hill Road NW, east of Tracyton. In June projects start in Suquamish on Division Ave. and on Mullenix Road at Bethel Road. Additional projects are planned in July and August.
