Island County OKs Glendale plan
May 11, 2010 · 3:21 PM
Island County commissioners approved a plan on Monday to leave the gap in Glendale Road. The road south of Clinton was split last year by a flash flood.
Commissioners adopted proposals by the county public works department that the damaged road be sealed off on both ends, leaving a 500-foot opening for Glendale Creek.
Commissioners also approved a plan for restoration work on the lower stream at Glendale. The stream is an important salmon-spawning area.
The projects will include $250,000 to secure the roadway — $160,000 to fashion road ends, and $90,000 to stabilize the embankments — and another $250,000 to restore the stream in its lower reach at Glendale.
Most of the money will come from zero-interest loans available from the County Road Administration Board, a statewide agency.
Work is expected to begin by late summer or early fall, officials said.
