ORCA airfield / Uplands Trailhead Closed

The ORCA airfield / Uplands Trailhead near Port Gamble will be closed through the end of the year due to the Port Gamble Bay restoration project resulting in no through access in this area.

Accordking to the Kitsap Sun, "Contaminated sediment pulled from the bay was heaped at the old mill site, forming an artificial hill on the waterfront. Pope Resources, which spent more than $20 million on the cleanup, will truck the mountain of soil to a field just south of town, where it will be spread out and capped with clean dirt."
