Hostmark Mains Project

The Hostmark Mains project started on June 20th and should be complete by mid to late August. The project was advertised in May and awarded to Pape & Sons Construction, Inc. The project will be immediately followed by the Hostmark Pavement Restoration/Road Preservation project to overlay the pavement. The Hostmark Mains project will include replacement of over 2,200 lineal feet of exiting water and sewer lines and structures. The work will take place between NE Hostmark St from SR 305 to Caldart Ave and it will include installation of new water mains, new sewer mains, stormwater sewer pipe liner, new stormwater catch basins, and a new asphalt base layer that is safe for driving.


City-wide Pavement Restoration - Hostmark

The Hostmark Pavement Restoration/Road Preservation project will provide an additional layer of asphalt to the base layer applied during the Hostmark Mains project, completing the asphalt work between SR 305 and Caldart on Hostmark Street. The final pavement work is scheduled to be completed before the start of school but due to the change in start date for North Kitsap Schools and tight construction schedules, it is possible that some work may still be ongoing for the first few days of school. The Hostmark Pavement Restoration project is currently advertised on and on the Engineering Department Notices page. Bids are due July 15th and the project will be awarded on August 3rd. Construction will not start until mid to late August after the Hostmark Mains project is complete.


Former City Hall Abatement and Demolition
The former City Hall demo project will abate hazardous materials, decommission underground storage tanks, and remove for proper disposal the entire former City Hall building, including all foundations, roofing systems, interior and exterior walls, all floors, and any contents remaining in the building. The project may also include the demolition of a city owned residential structure at 19159 8th Ave and another at 19250 7th Street. Hazardous materials surveys and testing have been completed for the two residential structures in preparation for removal; hazardous materials surveys and tests were completed previously for the former City Hall building. Once the former City Hall building has been removed, the City will transfer the property to a developer for residential development. The demolition project was advertised on June 3rd and bids were opened on June 30th. The City is currently reviewing the bid results, budget, and award options for Council discussion on July 6, 2016. Demolition is scheduled to begin by mid-July and be completed by mid-August.

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. Click here for more details on current project activities.

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. The project may also include replacement of two water services on NW Finn Hill which will be included in the bid documents as an alternate bid schedule. Specifications and bid documents are in the final review phase and the project will be advertised soon. Construction is scheduled to take place in 2016.

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 working on a new value-engineered bid package to re-bid the project in the fall of 2016.


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 2017.

Peterson Street Rock Wall Repair

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


Liberty Bay TMDL Plan

The City was 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 wrapping up and will be complete by June 30th, 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.
