Connector Road Update

The county uses a roller to get moisture and air bubbles out of the road base before finishing the chip-sealing – Louise Dustrude photo

The road adjoining the gravel pit and connecting Turn Point Road near the shipyard with Pear Point Road at the gravel pit will get its final chip-sealing this coming week, perhaps as soon as Tuesday according to county engineer Colin Huntemer.

After that, and after any loose rocks are swept off, the road could open to traffic at the discretion of the County Council.

In July or August the road will be striped and fences constructed on both sides. The road will have 10’-foot vehicle lanes and 4-foot shoulders for pedestrians or bicyclists.

Pear Point Road from there to Argyle will have at least a walking path along the south side, and perhaps in the future a sidewalk, curb, and gutter along the north side.

  1. This important road has been in the works for years. Many setbacks along the way including cynical and selfish challenges by neighbors in classic NIMBY fashion.

    Warbass will be much safer, fuel rigs will have a better way to approach Friday Harbor, Pear Point will probably see lessened traffic and best of all there will be much greater access to the acreage that promises development of a lot more affordable housing within the UGA that this community needs so badly.
