Stolen Mountain View school zone signs replaced

The in basket: Chester Peek said there was something wrong with the school zone signs at Mountain View Middle School in Bremerton.

Northbound on Perry Avenue, one comes to a school zone sign saying the 20 miles per hour limit is in effect from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., he said, but there is no sign ending the school zone or reestablishing the 25 mph limit one was in before the school zone started.

The first such sign isn’t until just past Sheridan Road, where it says 35 mph, the default speed limit on county roads. Perry Avenue is in the county from Stone Way north.

It had been that way for a couple of months, Chester said.

When I drove past the school, I noticed that that wasn’t the only problem. While the school zone extended all the way past the school southbound, the first school zone sign northbound was mid-way past the school.

The out basket: Doug Bear of Kitsap County Public Works says, “According to our traffic division, the signs were stolen. The posts were there, but the signs were gone. They were replaced June 17.”

Chester’s inquiry called it to their attention, Doug said.
