Cutting Culver Road through to Olalla Valley Road would compensate for the lost through access, he said.
The out basket: It’s on the county’s drawing board, says Doug Bear of Kitsap County Public Works. The county submitted a “concept level design” for what’s called a Hazard Mitigation Grant that would have helped pay for the Culver extension, but was turned down, he said.
“We continue to look for a revenue source that would fund this project,” he said.
The concept level design calls for vacating a stretch of Banner Road just uphill from the store when Culver extends all the way to Olalla Valley Road. Homes along the winding stretch would be reached from uphill then, but not from downhill, and through traffic couldn’t go through.

  1. Whats up with school zones?
    Some with lights…some with hours…some with hours that don’t seem to match school…some have lights that could be activated by police just to catch speeders? It seems like some kind of consistency would be prudent.
