Curley Creek Bridge
Posted June 3, 2011, by Ron Potter (rlpseattle [at] gmail [dot] com)

Signs are now posted on Southworth Drive announcing the closure of the Curley Creek Bridge on June 23, 2011. Detours will be in place using Banner, Locker and Sedgewick.

This is from the Kitsap Sun for April 27, 2011:

COLBY Quigg Brothers Inc. will replace an 82-year-old bridge over Curley Creek in South Kitsap. The Aberdeen construction company's bid of $2,030,000 was the lowest of five opened Tuesday by Kitsap County Public Works, said construction manager Jaques Dean.

The company can't close Southworth Drive, which is carried by the bridge, until June 23, the day after school is out. The road will be closed throughout the project, which will be completed in February. Banner, Locker and Sedgwick roads will handle the detoured traffic.
