The project is planned in two phases:
Design Lead for Phase 1 - Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife, Project Manager, Doris Small, 360.902.2258
Design Lead for Phase 2 - Kitsap County Department of Public works, Project Manager, Gunnar Fridriksson, 360.337.5777
The goal of the project is to restore tidal influences and natural habitat that are now impacted by the ineffective culverts on Southworth and Olympiad Drives and road fill. Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) is the design lead for the first three components of the project, and the County is the lead for the fourth and fifth components – the design of the bridge and an ADA compliant beach access to be included with the bridge construction.
Funding: The project is currently funded by Asarco Mitigation Funds at $4.1 million. Total estimated cost for the 5 components is approximately $7 million.
