  1. I am in general a big fan of these projects, but I wonder in this case if the option of simply removing the road was ever considered? This bridge seems like overkill for the number of homes in the neighborhood there. Not quite a bridge to nowhere, but quite an expensive construction for a road which in years past has often had a dog sleeping in the middle of it.

    1. As I recall, the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife preferred to remove the causeway entirely to restore the estuary to its greatest extent. Residents of the area did not want to lose the road, and Kitsap County ultimately supported their position. One major argument for maintaining that access is to provide an alternate route for people and emergency vehicles if the only other access into the neighborhood were to be blocked.
