Ace leases out Dickey Road asphalt plant


Granite Construction, Inc., of Watsonville, Calif., has signed a lease with Ace Paving Co. of Bremerton to operate an asphalt plant off Dickey Road in Central Kitsap. I just learned of it recently.

The lease started June 1 and will continue through the construction season, according to Granite spokeswoman Jacque Fourchy.

Ace Paving has four asphalt-production plants in all and the short-term lease is just for the one.

Ace Paving, a longtime local company, has encountered financial strain in the slower economy.

Ace partner Roy Christopherson, alluding to tough times, said only, “We’re in a changed situation.”
