Paving oddity on Wycoff Avenue

The in basket: Christine Purbaugh writes, “I live on North Cambrian and I was wondering why Wycoff (in Bremerton) between 13th and 15th streets was torn up recently (mid-June, I think) and then some patch work done and then about two weeks later Wycoff on the other side of 15th Street between 15th and 17th was paved, when it was Wycoff between 13th and 15th that needed the paving.
“Maybe the boss was off that week and the workers weren’t sure where to pave so they did the wrong side?” she speculated.

“The patch work that was done on Wycoff was not sufficient because now there are so many holes in the road that I won’t even go down that way anymore, because I don’t need the suspension on my car ruined.

The out basket: Bob Tulp, head of the city street department, has an explanation.
“We held up at the last minute on the paving of Wycoff from 13th to 15th
because of a sewer connection that needed to happen for a resident on
that block.
“Our policy is once it’s paved, no cuts for five years unless its
an emergency. We will still pave this section this year once we can
re-schedule and can confirm the sewer connection has been made,” he said.
