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
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
