6th Ave and 9th Ave Sewer Pump Stations

The 6th Ave and 9th Ave Sewer Pump Station improvements are progressing. The cherry tree has been removed and the contractor will provide landscape improvements to that area before the end of the project. The construction schedule has been affected by delayed delivery of structures. Remaining tasks include electrical work, landscaping, paving, and switching the connections from the old system to the new system. Construction is anticipated to be completed by February.


Pugh Well/Lincoln Well #2 Treatment for Manganese

This project consists of the design and construction of the Lincoln Well #2 Manganese Water Treatment Plant. The facility will be located on the Lincoln Well #2 site at 2500 NE Lincoln Road. Construction will include site grading, construction of a building to house the water treatment plant, installation of the water treatment plant, associated piping, backwash facilities, sedimentation pond, and necessary electrical and mechanical equipment. The pilot study for the treatment facility during the design phase was partially funded by a grant from the Department of Health. Construction was advertised and bids were opened in September. The bids all exceeded the Engineer’s estimate and were therefore rejected by Council. The Engineering Department is re-evaluating the project and will prepare a value engineered bid package to re-bid the project in the next few months. Construction is anticipated in early 2016.

Noll Road Improvements

The project will connect SR305 to NE Lincoln Rd via Noll Road, Languanet Lane, and Maranatha Road. The project will include roadway, street lighting, sidewalk, bike lane, and shared use path improvements in various configurations through the corridor. The project will realign Noll Road from ¼ mile south of Poulsbo Elementary School to SR305 (new roadway.) It will also include intersection improvements (roundabout or traffic signal) at the new intersection in the vicinity of Johnson Road and possible intersection traffic control at the Noll Road intersection. Preliminary design on this project is underway.

Peterson Street Rock Wall Repair

This project will consist of the design and construction of a new rock wall on Peterson Street. The existing wall has been surveyed and it has been determined that the stability of the wall is insufficient. This project is currently on hold.

Viking Ave PRV Installation

This project will consist of the installation of two pressure reducing valve systems in the vicinity of Viking Ave to allow additional flow in the City's water system from the west high zone to the low zone. In addition, the project will also include replacement of the failing water services on Finn Hill. The project will be advertised in the coming months and construction is expected in early 2016. Bid documents are in the review process.

Liberty Bay Pump Station Upgrades and Poulsbo Village Pump Station Upgrades

The Liberty Bay PS Upgrades will consist of the expansion of the lift station to meet current and future demands within the basin. Existing pump equipment will be replaced including all pumps, valves, and controls and the electrical pedestal/generator transfer switch will be replaced.


The Village PS Upgrades will consist of the replacement of existing pump equipment including all pumps, valves, and controls. Pump controls will be installed above ground and the float system will be upgraded to a transducer based control system with the floats as the backup.


The two pump station projects will be bid as one construction project in 2016.


Liberty Bay TMDL Plan

The City has been awarded a grant from Department of Ecology to develop a Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) Implementation Plan for Liberty Bay that will describe actions to help attain water quality standards and meet TMDL targets for discharges from the City. The project goal is to improve water quality in Liberty Bay and freshwater tributaries by reducing contaminant loading from impervious surfaces in the City’s urban area. Work on this project is underway and is expected to be complete by March 2016.

Liberty Bay Waterfront Trail

This project will extend trails in American Legion Park to the existing trail system in Fish Park. Feasibility studies and pre-design work on this project are ongoing. The viability of the project is promising and the City anticipates more forward progress on this project in the coming months.

Sewer Infiltration and Inflow

Elements of the City’s Annual Inflow Reduction Program and related I&I study include the development of the following: a smoke testing program, a flow monitoring program using data loggers to record and analyze data to identify areas that need improvement, and I&I policies for the Sewer Comprehensive Plan. Bid documents for smoke testing services to evaluate the inflow and infiltration of the Poulsbo Village basin were advertised in October and bids were opened on October 27th. The project will be awarded soon and the work will be completed in November and December.  


Lincoln Road

The Lincoln Road Project was complete in 2014. The project added new pavement, sidewalks, bike lanes, water main, storm main, and shared use path to NE Lincoln Road (from NE NE Lauire Vei Loop to Noll Road). The project started in June of 2014 and was partially funded by state and federal grant sources.

3rd Ave - Central Business District LID Improvements

This project was completed in June. It was partially funded by a stormwater grant from the Department of Ecology. The project included improvements to 3rd Ave Road and stormwater improvements throughout the city.

Decant Facility/Solid Waste Transfer Station

The construction of a new Decant Facility/Solid Waste Transfer Station is the first phase of the overall development of the new Public Works facility located at 22125 Viking Way. Construction was complete in June. The project was partially funded by a stormwater grant from the Department of Ecology. The Public Works Department is working on fencing the entire site to ensure access is only available to City employees. Design on the remainder of the site is continuing.
