‘Void’ opens in downtown Bremerton road, prompting closure

Road will likely be closed for a couple of days.

An “emergency repair” on Burwell St. between High Ave. and Anoka Ave. in downtown Bremerton has stopped westbound travel and closed one eastbound lane, Bremerton officials announced Wedesday morning.

Detours are being put into place. The repair will likely last two days, according to the Bremerton Public Works Department.

Bremerton public works manager Milenka Hawkins-Bates said a “void” or hole opened up on the roadway, and road workers were working to repair the damage on Wednesday.

On Wednesday evening, cones had been set up around the affected area and one lane of traffic was moving in either direction.

Travel will be affected through Thursday, Hawkins-Bates said. A detour will be set in place for westbound traffic and one eastbound lane will remain open.
