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.
