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 NW Road. 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.

Although heavy rains have slowed progress, the contractor will wrap up completion of the boardwalk and finish final work elements within the next few weeks. Following boardwalk completion, the contractor will finish all punchlist items and close out the project.
Re-paving of the roadway is scheduled for late spring 2021, when the weather is more cooperative and the City can be reasonably assured of the best quality product.
We appreciate everyone’s patience with this shared use path project and hope our citizens enjoy this new non-motorized route through the City.
