Port Orchard’s wayfaring welcome sign debuts

New signage is part of city’s Tremont Street widening project

PORT ORCHARD — Signaling that the Tremont Street widening project is closing in on its final months of construction, the City of Port Orchard’s “wayfaring” welcome sign made its debut this week at the roundabout intersection of Tremont and South Kitsap Boulevard.

Construction crews are continuing work to connect street signals and complete other utilities heading into May. Work also has started on landscaping the stretch of new roadway and adding city wayfare signs along Tremont and other finish work.

The road construction project is expected to be completed sometime in August, according to city officials.
