UPDATE | Valley Road to be improved

Valley Road will soon see improvements.

The Bainbridge Island City Council has forwarded a professional contract to its March 10 consent agenda for the reconstruction of Valley Road.

Improving Valley Road was added to the city’s to-do list in 2012 after an area drainage study.

The reconstruction will focus on resurfacing the roadway and improving storm drainage from Sunrise Drive to Falk Road. It will also include storm drainage improvements on Logg and Gertie Johnson roads.

Browne Wheeler Engineers, Inc. was selected out of 10 consultants to design the project.

At Monday’s meeting, the council unanimously voted to move forward with a $41,000 professional services contract.

“I can’t let this one go by without saying how thrilled people in the North Ward are that this is there. We’re finally paying attention,” said Mayor Anne Blair.
