Silverdale water quality treatment project begins in April
(Port Orchard, WA)
In mid-April Kitsap County begins a project to install water treatment
measures on Silverdale Way NW in the sidewalk area and on Byron Street. The
contractor will install Filterra underground tree box filters in the
sidewalks on Silverdale Way, and an underground filter system with permeable
pavers on Byron Street. These structures remove pollution from road runoff
and will result in a cleaner Dyes Inlet.
Construction will occur on weekdays during normal business hours. Most of
the work on Silverdale Way will be done in the sidewalk area between the
Kitsap Mall entrance at Red Robin extending south to Poplars Avenue. Traffic
disruptions will be minimal, with periodic one lane closures and sidewalk
closures. The Byron Street cul de sac will be closed during the paver
installation, and drivers may also see single lane closures on Byron between
Washington Street and the end of Byron near the waterfront.
The project is expected to start April 15 and be completed by late June. The
contractor will begin construction on Silverdale Way with completion by
early May. The Byron Street work is expected to being in early to mid-May
with completion at the end of June. As with any construction project, you
may see some dust and noise during construction periods.
The bid was awarded to Sound Excavation. The total project cost is $440,000
and is funded by Kitsap County Public Works Stormwater Division with
assistance from stormwater retrofit grant funds provided by the Washington
State Department of Ecology.
“These projects will filter pollution commonly found in road runoff,” says
Chris May, Kitsap County Stormwater Manager. “The result will be a cleaner
Dyes Inlet for people, fish and shellfish,” May added.
Updates for this project are available on The Road Report (www.kitsapgov.com/pw/roadwork.htm).
