Road restrictions put in place for Rockaway Beach Road
The city of Bainbridge Island has put weight restrictions on Rockaway Beach Road and has closed the road to local traffic only.
The restrictions go into effect immediately, and are a precautionary measure due to the consistently wet weather. The Rockaway Beach area has had landslides in the past.
The restrictions are from Old Creosote Road South to Halls Hill Road and will remain in place until further notice.
Vehicles over 6,000 pounds (gross weight) are prohibited.
The restrictions will mean alternate routes for Bainbridge school buses.
Blakely Route 37 and BHS/WMS/SAK/COS Route 43 will be on immediate
alternate routes, according to the Bainbridge Island School District. Alternate routes are listed on the district website at www.bisd303.org/Page/2562.
