Fjord Drive will reopen on Dec. 30

POULSBO — After two years, the final piece of the puzzle is (nearly) in place.

A guard rail will be installed along the west side of Fjord Drive, after which the street will finally be open to two-way traffic. The city will hold a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Dec. 30 at 2 p.m.

A portion of slope on Fjord Drive slipped in 2009, forcing the closure of one lane of the road while the city developed a plan to stabilize the slope. The slope was stabilized using 200 steel tendons, which were drilled and grouted into the soil, followed by a reinforcing mesh, and topped with a spray coating of “shotcrete.”

The city budgeted $814,000 for the project.
