Watch out for road work in Priest Point Park

Visitors at Priest Point Park should expect some detours for the next week as crews grind down and repave sections of the park’s roads.

Work began Wednesday and will continue until next Wednesday, according to a news release. Project manager Kip Summers said the paving will include part of the easternmost access road from the park to East Bay Drive and a loop down by two of the park’s picnic shelters.

Work will stop for the weekend, and detours will be provided.

This is one of several small paving projects for the city, including a section of West Bay Drive, Cooper Point Road and Capitol Way.

And it’s only the latest project this year at the park, one of Olympia’s oldest and best-loved. Over the summer, crews restored part of the shoreline at the north end of the park by removing a bulkhead. That will allow some natural erosion to improve fish habitat.
