Tremont final paving, alas, is delayed to next week

Paving contractor was delayed by weather last week on other projects

PORT ORCHARD — While weather conditions this week appear to be favorable for the final paving of Tremont Street, rain showers from last week have put a damper on plans to pave the widened boulevard on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, as previously planned.

The City of Port Orchard issued a statement Monday that the project’s paving subcontractor has been delayed by inclement weather on other projects and will need to reschedule the Tremont work until early next week.

The sequence of work closures will remain the same over the three-day window previously set — 7 p.m. to 5 p.m. — but the days in which the work will be performed have been changed to Monday through Wednesday, July 17 through 19.

On June 17, Tremont Avenue will be closed from SR 16 (including all on and off ramps) through to South Kitsap Boulevard. Local access within each work segment next week will be directed by flaggers, so delays should be expected, the city said.

Tremont also will be closed June 18 from the east side of the South Kitsap Boulevard roundabout through to the Pottery Avenue roundabout. And on the final day of final paving — June 19 — Tremont will be closed from the east side of Pottery roundabout to Port Orchard Boulevard.
