DESCRIPTION
Kitsap County used this funding for the Chico Estuary Restoration-Survey Phase project, which contributed to the restoration of an ecoregionally-significant pocket estuary and salmon stream in Kitsap County by accomplishing some pre-design tasks needed to estimate the costs involved in the design and construction of removing two major barriers at the mouth of Chico Creek. This project contributed to on-going efforts by Kitsap County, WSDOT, WDFW, Recreation and Conservation Office, SRFB, Suquamish Tribe, and others. This project accomplished three major elements: (1) topographic survey of Kitty Hawk Drive, the mouth of Chico Creek and portions of Chico Estuary in support of future efforts to remove a blocking culvert and ~200 yards of Kitty Hawk Drive and associated floodplain fill; (2) topographic survey and stream cross-sections of Chico Creek and its floodplain up to ~RM 0.5, above where it flows into the undersized SR3 culvert, in support of potential future WSDOT efforts to replace SR3's culvert with a bridge; and (3) survey and preliminary design of a ~300 yard driveway for 2 parcels on the far side of Kitty Hawk Drive. As a result of this project WSDOT was provided with survey data and maps that are essential for their preparation of a preliminary cost estimate for the Legislature's consideration of constructing a bridge for Chico Creek at SR3. A resolution on the SR3 bridge construction will provide direction for future design and permitting of a Kitty Hawk Drive culvert and road removal project.
