Open House provides trail overview March 28

KITSAP COUNTY — Kitsap County has invited citizens to a community open house to learn about the draft feasibility study underway for a 6.7-mile shared-use trail connecting SR 104 in Port Gamble to Stottlemeyer Road NE.

This shared-use trail is part of the Sound to Olympics Trail concept connecting the Hood Canal Bridge, Kingston, Poulsbo and Bainbridge Island.

The Port Gamble Trail Draft Feasibility Study open house is set for 6:30-8 p.m., March 28 at Village Green Community Center, 26159 Dulay Road NE in Kingston.

During the open house, county staff will provide an overview of the Draft Feasibility Study, share work study materials and take public comments.

The Draft Feasibility Study identifies a preferred trail alignment and documents environmental concerns, design and constructability, operational constraints and estimated costs associated with constructing a trail. If built, the bicycle and pedestrian trail will provide a non-motorized corridor connecting locations within northern Kitsap County.
