Downtown Port Townsend

When I first heard of this street project, I knew that the city would be able to do it without closing down the sidewalk or the businesses. They’re doing it.

Water Street is PT’s main drag through downtown. It’s the only drag through town. PT is rebuilding Water Street, from sidewalk to road surface to utility locations. During the winter, tourist traffic is miniscule, but the shops stay open just in case. Therefore, there must be a walkway and a way for cars to travel, while those things are being replaced. A tricky problem, but they figured out how to do it.

The goal is to get it finished before the tourist season. Or die.
