This project will make two substantial improvements for stormwater in East Bremerton:
Olympic Manor Neighborhood – This neighborhood, in particular Dibb Street, Robin Street, and Eagle Avenue, experiences flooding caused by insufficient stormwater capacity in the system. The City seeks to correct the flooding issue by installing new and larger pipes to increase stormwater capacity in both Robin and Eagle. Along with these system improvements, the City will also complete needed improvements to the downstream outfall and inlet for Stephenson Creek where these pipes will connect to and make roadway improvements. These improvements consist of an asphalt overlay for Eagle, complete the missing sidewalk section on the east side of Robin, and curb ramp upgrades and improving the ADA accessibility for the neighborhood.
Pine Road Stormwater Outfall – Near the intersection of Lebo Boulevard and Sheridan Road, there is a failing outfall on the beach. The project will replace this outfall with a new one that will dissipate energy reducing beach erosion, remove concrete debris surrounding the existing, and greatly improve the beach environment.
