Salsbury Point boat ramp replacement

(Port Orchard, WA)  Construction is anticipated to start October 14 on replacement of the eastern-most boat ramp at Salsbury Point County Park. During the 6-week construction period the ramp will be closed for public use. The remaining two, western-most ramps will remain open for recreational boating use.

Kitsap County Parks had received a Washington State Recreation Conservation Office (RCO) grant to replace the failed boast ramp. The new boat ramp will fit within the footprint of the existing ramp and will be constructed of flat, interlocking concrete panels, replacing the existing crowned asphalt ramp. This design will make it easier to launch recreational boats. In addition, new rip-rap will be placed around the ramp, and a storm water pipe will be replaced. The surrounding adjacent underwater area will be planted with eelgrass to provide a better environment for salmon. Due to high tides, some construction will need to occur at night when tides are lower. Reid-Middleton has been the engineer of record on the Project. A construction contract of $107,165.00 has been awarded to Sealevel Bulkhead Builders of Kingston.

Kitsap County Parks Department’s mission is to provide quality of life enhancing opportunities through the management of natural areas and specialized facilities, foster community stewardship, and offer an outstanding service-oriented environment.
