Seabeck Holly Road NW closes for bridge construction8/10/2020

​Seabeck Holly Road NW closes to through traffic between Foley Lane and Larson Lane from August 12 to December 31, 2020 to construct a 60-foot bridge over Seabeck Creek. Contractors for the Hood Canal Salmon Enhancement Group in partnership with Kitsap County will replace an undersized 72-inch culvert allowing for better fish passage upstream. Through traffic is diverted to NW Holly Road as an alternative route.  Learn more about the project details and detour route by visiting kcowa.us/seabeckholly.

This project will also allow floodwaters to pass unobstructed as well as improve fish passage after a history of industrial-scale logging and rural development in that area. The Hood Canal Salmon Enhancement Group plans to add large woody debris to the creek to improve habitat complexity and provide roughness to retain sediment. An aggressive re-vegetation effort involves the planting of over 3,200 native plants. Native plants help create cooler water for fish, provide bank stabilization, and encourage a healthy and diverse ecosystem of local birds, bugs, and other mammals.
