Oct 31: Dinner Speaker Jon Brand Kitsap County Transportation

Our October Diner Speaker is County Engineer Jon Brand from Kitsap County Public Works. John will discuss Kitsap Roadways and Transportation Planning.

The County maintains, operates, and improves over 900 miles of roads in unincorporated Kitsap County. The Road Division is divided into three sections; Road Maintenance, Traffic Operations and Transportation Planning, and Engineering. The goal of the Division’s work is to develop, operate, and maintain safe and efficient roadways that meet the public’s expectations and respect the natural and manmade environment. Funding for these divisions comes from two primary sources, the road levy portion of your property tax and the County’s share of the State’s motor vehicle fuel tax.

Getting you There
It’s an incredible journey from the first Kitsap County road that ran from Port Gamble to Agate Pass near Port Madison on Bainbridge Island to the 915 miles that Kitsap County maintains today.  Kitsap County Public Works has been getting you there since 1857. This 3-chapter story map helps explain our past, our commitment to preserving our existing road system, and how we plan to meet the challenges of ensuring mobility into the future.

Come out and learn about the county’s plan for future transportation needs. Join us at 5 PM  Thursday October 31 at the Family Pancake House 3900 Kitsap Way, Bremerton.  For more information call Pat Ryan at (360) 692-4750 pat.ryan58@comcast.net
