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 or scheduled in the near future. 

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 Jessica Tate 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. Contact information: or (425) 292-0260.

Schedule - The project is tentatively scheduled to begin the end of July, 2017

Bendigo Blvd. Right-Turn Lane at Park Street:  Transportation –
A right-turn lane will be constructed for northbound Bendigo Boulevard from halfway to the South Fork Snoqualmie River bridge to the Park Street intersection.  The new right-turn lane will reduce traffic queues at two traffic signals.  Work includes removal and replacement of the existing curb, gutter, and sidewalk, pavement widening, restriping, new bike lane, new landscaping, and crosswalk modifications.  The project is currently ninety-five percent complete.

Mt. Si Springs VFD:  Water – This 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 existing 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.
