Work to begin on Old Clifton Road improvements

Design work completed for new roundabout

PORT ORCHARD — McCormick Communities LLC is beginning construction this month of a new street called Campus Parkway and associated roundabout intersection improvements on Old Clifton Road between McCormick Woods Drive and Feigley Road.

The City of Port Orchard said construction will continue through the summer of 2021.

Initial phases of construction in February and March will occur mostly outside of the roadway, officials said in a news release. Motorists are cautioned to drive slowly through the construction zone; flagging operations will be enlisted intermittently for limited delivery and roadway operations to ensure public safety. Officials also said the speed limit for the zone may be changed from 35 to 25 miles per hour.

The work is being done to accommodate future planned development both east and west of Old Clifton Road and to meet city requirements to maintain traffic levels of service, according to the city’s public works department.

Design work has been completed by the city for another roundabout project for the intersection at Old Clifton Road and Anderson Hill Road. Officials said the city is applying for grant funding for the project, which is to include intersection improvements at McCormick Woods Drive and shoulder widening along Old Clifton Road.
