Viking Avenue 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. Click Here to see a map showing approximate locations of PRVs. The project was awarded to Olympic Peninsula Construction, Inc. in August. The work is anticipated to begin in September and should be complete before the end of the year.

Former City Hall Demolition
The major work for the demolition project is complete. There may be some final punch list items to complete before the project is closed out. The City is working on the transfer of the property to the developer for residential development.


Residential Properties Abatement and Demolition
This project consists of 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. Bids were opened for this project on August 8th. The City is currently evaluating cash flow and budget capacity and has not made a decision to award this contact yet. The bid award deadline has been extended to January 20, 2017.

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, and the right-of-way acquisition process for the south segment started in September. Click here for more details on current project activities.

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 2015. 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 late 2016 or early 2017.

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 late 2016 or early 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 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.


Liberty Bay TMDL Plan
The City was awarded a grant from the 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. Development of the plan was completed in June 2016.

Hostmark Mains and Pavement Restoration
Two separate projects took place on Hostmark Street this summer between SR 305 and Caldart Ave – the Hostmark Mains project and the City-wide Pavement Restoration. The Mains project was focused on the utilities and included replacement of over 2,200 lineal feet of existing water and sewer lines and structures, and included a new asphalt base. The Pavement Restoration project provided the final layer of asphalt to complete the paving for the project area. The projects were challenging and faced tight timelines but the work was executed quickly and efficiently. The City extends its appreciation to the nearby residences and businesses for their patience during the long working hours and inevitable traffic delays, and to the contractors for their professionalism and hard work.
