Roads Make No Sense

Talked to Mark Dorsey, Port Orchard’s public works director, a little while ago and neither one of us get a few things about the roads there.

Somebody’s been screwing around with the names since I lived there quite a while ago. Didn’t Beach Drive go all the way through Annapolis and to the light at Westbay Center? Now Bay Street goes through downtown, takes a left at that intersection and continues all the way to Olney Street. That’s where Beach Drive starts now.

And didn’t Mile Hill Drive go all the way down the hill to that same intersection. Now it’s Bethel Avenue. What’s the difference between Bethel Avenue and Bethel Road? Why can’t it be one or the other?
