Two-week Highway 305 closure planned in September

Highway officials plan to close a stretch of 305 between Suquamish and Poulsbo for 15 days this fall.

The closure, which would begin Sept. 8, is part of a work plan to replace to culverts running under the highway. Traffic would be rerouted, adding just over three miles to the trip between Bainbridge Island and Poulsbo.

Local officials are concerned about how the closure will impact North Kitsap and Bainbridge drivers.

“This is going to be hell for a lot of people,” Poulsbo City Councilwoman Becky Erickson said.
