Buses Detouring Around Closed Manette Bridge

Kitsap Transit came out Wednesday with how it plans to get along without the Manette Bridge, which will be closed all of next week between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. They’ve got it figured out before the state has even announced — to us, anyway — that the bridge will be closed. I presume its for annual inspection.

Routes 21, 25 and 29 will be detoured, and KT will run a Manette shuttle to serve riders who’ll lose service on the aforementioned routes.

Here’s the details:

#21 Perry Avenue – The #21 bus will travel to and from the Bremerton Transportation Center using the Warren Avenue Bridge.  It will serve Sheridan between Wheaton and Schley, Schley between Sheridan and Magnuson, Magnuson to Perry Avenue and Perry from Stone Way to Sylvan. The portion of the trip between Perry and Sylvan and the East Bremerton Transfer Center will operate normally.

#25 East Park – The #25 bus will travel to and from the Bremerton Transportation Center using the Warren Avenue Bridge.  It will serve the Harrison Hospital loop then serve the north portion of Lebo, Rickey, Pine and Sheridan as it normally does.

#29 Trenton Avenue – The #29 bus will travel to and from the Bremerton Transportation Center using the Warren Avenue Bridge. It will serve Sheridan between Wheaton and Perry, Perry between Sheridan and Stone Way, and Stone Way between Perry and Trenton. The portion of the trip north of Trenton and Stone Way and the East Bremerton Transfer Center will operate normally.

Manette Closure Shuttle – The Manette Closure Shuttle bus will serve Shore Drive, 11th, the south end of Trenton Avenue and Perry Avenue, Old Wheaton Way and Harrison Hospital, taking riders to the East Bremerton Transfer Center.  It will meet the eastside buses at the transfer center, then operate as a take-home back to the Manette area.
