Come walk Washington Avenue with me Saturday

795719_t607

On Saturday afternoon, I invite you to come walk and tour Bremerton’s Washington Avenue, a road that this year will be completely torn up and put back together again. As part of my monthly Story Walk series, we’ll explore all the facets of this $3.5 million project, including:

  • Where the roadway will shrink from four lanes to two, to make room for bike lanes, lighting and wider sidewalks.
  • How the project makes obsolete an environmentally troublesome beach sewer pipe, and what crews will do with it.
  • Why Evergreen-Rotary Park, too, will benefit from the project and connect the park to its new portion at the Kitsap 9/11 memorial.
  • And more!

We’ll have plenty of time for questions and Bremerton Public Works Director Chal Martin will be along to go over project details as well. The tour is free and I hope you can make it.
