New Port Orchard path’s entrance called ‘most dangerous’

The in basket: Don Rude of Port Orchard says, “Bay Street, westbound just west of Rockwell Street, is the start of the new walking path. This is the most dangerous spot in town.

“A car can go to the right and down that path very easy, either a young driver being stupid or a DUI driver! There should be a curb along Bay Street! There should be a steel post in the middle of the path where it starts to go down hill! Whoever engineered that path was not thinking straight.”

The out basket: It’s not done yet, says Mark Dorsey, public works director for Port Orchard. Fencing and guardrail to keep drivers from making the kind of mistake Don envisions are yet to come.
