Apex Road intersection work nearly complete
June 24, 2009 · 9:51 AM
Crews are putting the final touches on a road project that added a left turn lane on Anderson Hill Road to Apex Road.
“There’s still some ancillary work being done but we expect the contractor will have the project wrapped up next week,” said Jaques Dean, construction manager for Kitsap County Public Works.
The work is being done by Primo Construction from Sequim under a $241,222 contract.
The work, which began May 4, widened the existing lanes to 12 feet and added 4-foot paved shoulders in addition to the turn lane. The project also included drainage improvements.
“This project increases safety at the intersection and allows for better traffic flows on Anderson Hill,” said Central Kitsap Commissioner Josh Brown. “It’s part of a comprehensive package of road improvements that is making it easier to get in and around the Silverdale area."
Other projects this summer in Central Kitsap include finishing repairs to the Chico bridge (late August completion), adding turn lanes at the Bucklin Hill and Tracyton Beach intersection (late October completion), the new mural on the Anderson Hill Road overpass and the continuing work on the new Waaga Way extension (end of the year) as well as several maintenance projects.

“We know road work can be an inconvenience,” Brown said “but the permanent improvements are worth enduring the temporary inconveniences.”
