Glenwood Road work staging draws questions

The in basket: Judy Runquist writes, “Approximately two weeks ago they (the county?) dug up the outside half of the north- and southbound lanes of Glenwood Road between Lider Road and the left-turn lane to stay on Glenwood Road.

“They have put out signs which say bump at each end of the mess, grooved pavement, and motorcycle caution. This work has left less than half of a paved lane each way.

“In addition,” she said, “pot holes have developed on each side at the south end of the Glenwood turn lane. The pot holes are large enough to cause tire damage.

“Why didn’t they pave the road at the time of the rip out? It couldn’t have been a weather issue as it was nice and sunny but not extremely hot. Now the rains have come, which I expect would impact paving work.”

The out basket: Jacques Dean, Kitsap County road superintendent,  says, “County crews have completed preparatory asphalt repairs on Glenwood Road, between Lider Road and Lake Flora Road, in advance of a scheduled pavement overlay. The preparatory work included removal and replacement of badly degraded portions of asphalt, milling of outside lane lines on both sides of the roadway, and milling of each end of the planned project.

“This project will pave only the driving lanes and not shoulders, as the shoulders are in good condition and not subject to typical traffic loading. Milling the edge lines and project ends will allow for a smooth transition between existing asphalt and new asphalt, once the new overlay is applied.

“Glenwood Road was scheduled to be paved on Tuesday, 9/6, but has been delayed due to inclement weather. It has been rescheduled for this Tuesday or Wednesday, again weather permitting.”
