What does Warren Avenue barrier mean to parade route?November 21st, 2012 by travis baker
The in basket: Among the questions and comments generated by the center median the city of Bremerton had installed on Warren Avenue, consuming one northbound lane between Burwell and Sixth streets and blocking cross-traffic at Fourth and Fifth street, is a simple question from James Hochstein: “How will the Armed Forces day parade be accommodated?”
The out basket: I’m guessing the former parade route must have crossed Warren on either Fourth or Fifth.
Gunna Fridriksson of the city street engineers says, “We did discuss this with the Armed Forces parade committee last winter. At the time they were pretty busy with the 2012 parade and deferred discussion, but we did discuss some of the other staging options, such as Park Avenue.
“My expectation is that right after the New Year, we will get together and work it out,” Gunnar said.
