Engineering > Capital Projects > Finn Hill Road Improvements – Shared Use Path Project


The City of Poulsbo, in partnership with Kitsap County, will construct a paved shared use path on the East side of NW Finn Hill Road and Rhododendron Lane NW between Vinland Elementary School and Olhava Way. This shared use path will be approximately 4,000ft long and 14ft wide with a few segments narrower to accommodate critical areas. This is a an important project for the City to add pedestrian facilities to NW Finn Hill Road as well as to provide a safe route to school from neighborhoods in the area.

In addition to the shared use path, the project includes construction and installation of a storm drain system, curb and gutter, street-side landscaping, and a short elevated boardwalk. As part of this project, the City worked with Puget Sound Energy to install street lights on NW Finn Hill Road to improve safety.

The utility companies have finished relocating their facilities and the contractor, Strickland and Sons, has begun construction on the stormwater pipe on Rhododendron Lane NW. After the work on Rhododendron Lane NW is complete, they will shift to NW Finn Hill Road and begin installing stormwater pipe and working on roadside grading.

Expect delays and flagging two-way one lane traffic most days.  We thank you for your patience.
