Treasure Island is one of several private island communities in the South Puget Sound area that are either accessible by a bridge or ferry that are owned through their island improvement clubs. The maintenance for such comes through annual dues. Currently the Treasure Island Community Club is looking for contractors to build them a new concrete bridge by the end of 2012. A tentative name for it is the Dan Doyle Bridge. The current bridge is a timber stringer a style popular many years ago but out of favour largely due to creosote. In fact Washington State is in the process of removing all timber bridges purely for environmental reasons. Treasure Island's bridge was built in 1953 when the island was first platted by timber company Pope and Talbot. The original wooden deck made way for a concrete one in 1974. An interesting note when the deck was replaced a number of people expressed interest in building a causeway out to the island instead. Treasure Island appears on some maps as Reach Island. Stretch Island, also private, lies to the South. It is sometimes a stretch or reach to get to those islands even with a minus tide that sometimes exposes the entire section now crossed by bridges.
