The Road Report

Kitsap County roadways still being cleared from this week’s snowfall.

PORT ORCHARD — Road crews from Kitsap County’s public works department are continuing to clean up after the snowstorm that battered the area this week.

According to the department’s weekly “Road Report” news release, the cleanup work includes addressing drainage issues and removing storm debris throughout the county.

In the Central and South Kitsap portions of the county, the department said road crews are attending to storm recovery and other maintenance issues.

Motorists should expect moderate delays of 5-10 minutes on Ridgetop Boulevard Northwest (between SR 303 and Quail Run Drive) as work continues on an improvement project there. Flaggers will direct motorists through the work area. Some delays may be longer due to equipment movement.

Intermittent delays are expected on Silverdale Way between Byron and Anderson Hill Road as a contractor completes work on the project there. Outer lanes may be closed for shoulder and sidewalk work, the department stated. The project continues through March 31.

In the North Kitsap area, storm recovery and other maintenance issues also will take up most of the road crews’ time in the coming week. As mentioned in previous weeks, Washington Boulevard Northeast has a 10,000-pound weight limit in effect. Portions of the road surface are gravel, the department stated.
