2022 ROADS PROGRAM 

  • The bid opening was held on May 9, 2022 and the award was approved at the May 24, 2022 City Council business meeting.

  • May-June 2022 - Public Works Operations and Maintenance (O&M) crews will provide shoulder clearing and tree trimming work in preparation of the upcoming road work. In the areas requiring no parking, prior to prep work, the O&M crews will post "No Parking" signage on-site.

  • Late June to Late July - Road work will occur and will include pulverizing the existing pavement and reusing it as base course, then paving with recycled asphalt.

  • Paving dates will be posted on-site two (2) days prior to paving. During paving, the road will be closed from 7 AM till 7 PM.  Residents are advised to move their vehicles to nearby street for access during paving operations. 

  • All Work by the Contractor is planned to fall within the planned working window from June 27 thru July 29 from 7 AM to 7 PM, Mon-Fri; weather permitting. No work will occur on the 4thof July holiday.

Project Overview

The City of Bainbridge Island maintains a 140-mile road network. Each year, the City receives an average of $650,000 for roads and repair projects. The budget includes $400,000 from Transportation Benefit Fund (TBF or car-tab fees) revenues, and the remainder is supported by the City’s Street Fund. 

The 2022 road work will include grinding and paving (see list of locations on the map above). This technique provides a long-term fix for uneven pavement or other defects in the road and creates a smoother surface for driving. The pavement mix that will be used includes a mix of new and recycled on-site materials that meet Washington State Department of Transportation requirements for mix design.

Road Assessment

The City uses a Pavement Condition Index (PCI) and traffic volumes to rate the conditions of the road network and to determine where road maintenance will happen. The PCI ranks the overall health of a pavement segment on a scale of 0 to 100 (0 represents a failed street; 100 represents a new street). The PCI rating is determined by a visual inspection of pavement condition, age, and distress.

As of the 2019, the City's average PCI score is 70. The current score reflects the fact that many of our high-volume roads are in good shape, but many smaller low-traffic roads are in need of repairs. The City strives to keep the higher-volume roads from deteriorating while addressing smaller roads—and the associated neighborhood concerns— over the long-term.

The 2022 program will focus on smaller roads with a pavement score of less than 25.

The City’s last pavement condition report recommended spending a minimum of $1 million annually on pavement preservation.
