Project Description:

In an effort to address deteriorating neighborhood streets, the City of Poulsbo will be conducting a Pavement Maintenance Demonstration Project within city limits this summer. Feedback from City residents is highly encouraged.

Innovative variations of chip seal will be applied to neighborhood streets. Residents along Urdahl Rd, 9th Ave NE, portions of 12th Ave NE, and portions of Kevos Pond Drive will be the first to have their declining streets addressed.  Additionally, residents along Haugen, Watland, and remaining portions of 12th Ave NE may also be included in this year’s project. More information on project locations, preservation techniques, and installation process can be found  in the Pavement Maintenance Demonstration Project Flyer.

The methods of chip seal to be demonstrated, allow for minimal construction inconvenience compared to overlay projects and will result in smoother roadway than a traditional chip seal. The new road surface will look similar to black asphalt and chips will receive an extra layer of liquid asphalt to keep them in place. This pavement preservation technique is very cost effective compared to other alternatives. If we find favorable results, this will allow for improvements to other neighborhood streets at an accelerated schedule.

Residents are encouraged to get involved in this demonstration project by becoming familiar with roadway condition before and after the demonstration project. Please share your feedback with the City via the project webpage or by emailing comments to publicworks@cityofpoulsbo. Written comments may also be delivered to the Public Works department on the second floor of City Hall.
