PORT ANGELES — Bruce Selleg, right, takes a measurement during Wednesday’s installation of the first of six decorative gates designed to guard the Liberty Bell replica at Veterans Memorial Park in Port Angeles as Richard Stephens, left, and gate artists Gray Lucier and Bob Stokes wait to make leveling adjustments.

The bell and its covered pavillion had become a hangout for transients and homeless people, prompting a fundraising campaign to construct fencing and install lighting to prevent vandalism.

Stokes said all six panels of the fold-out gate would be installed Wednesday with final work on the project expected to be completed by Friday, weather permitting.
