Work is progressing with the second phase of the Tremont Street widening project underway on one of Port Orchard’s three main arterials that leads into the downtown area from busy SR 16. As shown in this aerial photo, the outline of the planned roundabout at the intersection of Tremont and Pottery Avenue is beginning to take shape after months of utility trenching and construction of stormwater runoff ponds. Another roundabout is planned for the intersection of Tremont and South Kitsap Boulevard, near the interchange with SR 16. Mark Dorsey, the city’s public works director, said that work will begin later this fall when the project transitions to Phase 3. Dorsey said a detour plan for that phase has not yet been developed, but he expects the current detour at Pottery will remain in place and shifted as needed.                                The full Tremont Street project is expected to be completed by the end of next year. (Robert Zollna drone image)
