New smooth surface on Water Street

A new surface of asphalt was applied Thursday to Water Street between Polk and Tyler streets as part of the $2.7 million Water Street enhancement that began Jan.2 and which is expected to be finished in June. Ten trucks from Lakeside Industries dumped loads of asphalt from Shine to build up the bed surface to 5 1/2 inches. The work began at 7 a.m. during a rainstorm that cleared before noon. The project runs from the Port Townsend ferry landing and along Water Street to Taylor Street. It will move utilities underground, revamp the sidewalks and replace the 80-year-old sewer lines running under Water Street. Work is scheduled to move south and the road will be prepared for its surface to be paved next month. (Jeannie McMacken/Peninsula Daily News)
