DESCRIPTION
Kitsap County used this grant to complete analysis of options for replacing a culvert that is blocking fish passage on Chico Creek at Golf Club Hill Road. Chico Creek is located in the central Kitsap Peninsula, flowing to Dyes Inlet. Chico is the largest and most productive salmon and steelhead stream in the West Sound Watersheds and is the highest priority both culturally and ecologically for the Suquamish Tribe. Replacing the culvert under Golf Club Hill Road and related restoration has been on the 3 Year Work Program for the PSS rec. plan for the last 5 years. There is on going work to restore the estuary one mile downstream from this proposed project, including removing a county road (Kitty Hawk Drive) and replacement of the WSDOT bridge over Highway 3. Stakeholders reached a consensus in October 2009 to either replace the Golf Club Hill Road culvert with a >110' bridge with wing walls and 2:1 slopes OR to abandon the culvert and build an alternate road upstream. Construction of alternative access would eliminate one bridge in the Chico floodplain, a key component of this restoration plan. This project funded a continued investigation of the new road concept, to a preferred alternative and cost estimate. It was determined that abandoning the stream crossing on Golf Club Hill Road was not feasible due to landowner negotiation conflicts, and the preferred alternative is to replace the existing structure with a 102 foot BEBO arch bridge and re-align the approach to Golf Club Hill Road slightly to the south on property owned by Kitsap County. The other phases to protect and restore this priority lower mainstem of Chico Creek have been funded through the Salmon Recovery Funding Board as follows: Phase1 Chico instream restoration: 04-1209 (north of culvert); Chico Property Acquisition (south of culvert): 05-1389; Chico Phase 2/3 Design: 08-1639 and Phase 2 Chico Creek Instream restoration construction: 09-1672.
