Will Old Wheaton Way washout be fixed?


The in basket: Tom Wisniewski  of Bremerton writes to say, “It has been a year and a half since the December 2007 rain storms partially washed out Lower Wheaton Way near East 18th Street.  Are the Jersey barriers that have been up since then considered the permanent fix for this problem?

The out basket: No, they are due to come out when repairs are made next year. Larry Matel of the city of Bremerton engineers says, “In June of this year, the city will begin design for the permanent fix for this location.  The city will receive funding from the federal government, approaching 87 percent, for the cost of the project, estimated at $500,000 to $600,000. The City will need to budget for the remaining cost in its 2010 budget.”
