Routes 8, 9, 86 & ACCESS Bus Services - Construction at Bethel Avenue and Bay Street

July 07, 2023

Route 8–Bethel, Route 9–East Port Orchard, Route 86–Southworth and ACCESS Bus Services 
Construction at Bethel Avenue and Bay Street

Effective July 6 through Fall 2023

Starting Thursday, July 6, the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) will begin preliminary work on a planned roundabout at the intersection of Bay Street and Bethel Street in Port Orchard. WSDOT anticipates work will last through the fall.

Construction will include one-lane closures that will impact Route 8–Bethel, Route 9–East Port Orchard, Route 86–Southworth and ACCESS bus services. Kitsap Transit cannot guarantee on-time connections to the Port Orchard Ferry Dock, the Southworth Ferry Terminal or other bus routes at this time.

Passengers should plan ahead and anticipate there will be times that Routes 8, 9 and 86 will not make the scheduled connection with the Port Orchard Ferry, Southworth Ferry or other bus routes. Kitsap Transit will attempt to provide an additional bus to keep the other routes on schedule between 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM when traffic conditions are typically more congested. 

If you have questions, please contact Kitsap Transit's Customer Service staff by calling 360.373.2877 or 800.501.RIDE.
