Pine Road Stormwater Basin Improvements
Project Status (August 14, 2023)
Project work in upland areas is nearing completion and the Contractor is working on punch list items. Landscape areas will be seeded this fall, at which time the upland project phase will be complete. A second phase of the project to replace the failing outfall at the intersection of Sheridan Road and Lebo Boulevard is currently in design. Construction for the new outfall is planned for Summer 2024.
All project areas are currently open to traffic with no restrictions.
This project made 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 project corrects 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 completed needed improvements to the downstream outfall and inlet for Stephenson Creek where these pipes connected and made 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 – The project outfall, located near the intersection of Lebo Boulevard and Sheridan Road, is a failing. 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.
