The City’s Capital Improvement Projects are developed based on meeting the future needs of the various utilities and street systems and are generally formulated through a comprehensive planning process.

The following projects are currently underway: 

Downtown Plaza Project: The work to be performed shall include improvements of a section of North Bend Way and Main Avenue in the downtown historical business district. The improvements include raising the intersection of North Bend Way and Main Avenue to create a unique space that includes a traffic calming environment with a curbless intersection and a larger walkable plaza area. Other work includes unique concrete surface treatments in the intersection/plaza area, above ground urban design features, replacement of street trees, replacement of all sidewalks from east of Bendigo Blvd (SR 202) to west of Ballarat Avenue, new irrigation to all street trees, full ADA compliance within the project limits, replacement of water main and services within the intersection area, stormwater improvements, new decorative roadway luminaires at the intersection of North Bend Way and Main Avenue, a new street power distribution network for street tree lighting and festival power hookups, joint utility trench for relocation of communication facilities, and other work as required to complete the Project. A-1 Landscaping and Construction of Snohomish is the general contractor for the project.

The goal of the project is to help stimulate the economic core of North Bend by upgrading the aging public infrastructure and creating an attractive and safe environment to shop, dine and gather. This investment into the revitalization of the downtown core will help provide an attractive atmosphere for citizens and tourists to do business.

All Downtown Businesses are encouraged to contact the North Bend Visitor Center & Mountain View Art Gallery Manager Bre Keveren to explore partnership opportunities through the North Bend Downtown Foundation. Options will vary based on specific business needs but may include use of the Visitor Information Center (VIC) plaza, North Bend Business Spotlight, or other promotional opportunities.

Torguson Park Improvements - New Concession/Restroom Building, Central Plaza and Loop Trail:  Parks –
This  large capital project on a 21-acre site consists of a new concession/restroom building, new backstops and dugouts of four baseball fields, creation of a central gathering plaza, and provides a recreational paved loop trail that circles the youth baseball field and soccer field, as well as a spur trail that connects to the western pedestrian entrance.  The project includes grading for floodplain compensatory storage and many utility connections.

North Bend Way Curb & Gutter/ADA Improvements - Ballarat to Downing - North Side:  Transportation –
This capital project  improves pedestrian safety and mobility on the north side of North Bend Way.  This project links two other capital projects (Downtown Plaza and proposed Park Street Roundabout).  Curb placement is designed in concert with the future anticipated street improvements.  The sidewalk will be widened in accordance with the City's design standards for this section of a major arterial.  Project is mostly funded by a Community Development Block Grant.

Bendigo Blvd. Right-Turn Lane at Park Street:  Transportation –
A new right-turn lane is being constructed on northbound Bendigo Boulevard from halfway to the South Fork Snoqualmie River bridge to the Park Street intersection.  The right-turn lane reduces traffic queues at two traffic signals.  Work included removal and replacement of the existing curb, gutter, and sidewalk, pavement widening, restriping, new bike lane, new landscaping, and crosswalk modifications.  The new right turn lane is open with temporary striping.  Physical completion of the project is anticipated in summer 2017.

Mt. Si Springs VFD:  Water – This capital project installs 2 new variable frequency drive (VFD) pumps at the Mt. Si Springs plant in an effort to increase the city's water supply and efficiency from the City's primary water source.  This project also minimizes the need to use Hobo Springs and the Centennial Well, thereby reducing water mitigation payments to Seattle Public Utilities. This project was awarded to Omega Contractors, Inc. for construction.

A more detailed list of recently completed, ongoing and future capital projects is available on the 2018 Capital Project Update.
