Road maintenance schedule

Kitsap County Public Works has listed multiple areas in central and south Kitsap County where road maintenance will be performed next week . The Jan. 7 through 11, listing is meant to give drivers advance warning of road maintenance and alert them to possible detours and delays.

Delays are measured in three ranks: up to five minutes, five to 10 minutes, and more than 10 minutes. For detours, the report will mention if a road is set to be closed or restricted.
