Bay Street exit, on-ramp closures this week

SR 166 is to be impacted Tuesday through Thursday, May 22-24.

PORT ORCHARD — South Kitsap motorists may encounter three consecutive nights of Bay Street (State Route 166) closures Tuesday through Thursday of this week, City of Port Orchard officials said.

At 9 p.m. Thursday, May 22 through Thursday, May 24, the westbound State Route 16 exit to SR 3 will close, as will the Bay Street on-ramp to westbound SR 16. Both will reopen at 5 a.m. each following day.

Both sets of closures will allow construction crews working for the Washington State Department of Transportation to kick off an SR 16 paving project between Gorst and Southeast Burley Olalla Road.

Signed detours will be posted. The work is weather-sensitive and could be rescheduled, the city’s public works department officials said.
