Harborview Drive and Stinson Ave Intersection Improvements
Phase 1 - Installation of Underground Utilities


Stinson Avenue will be closed daily (7:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Monday- Friday) from September 27 through October 31, to thru traffic north of the roundabout at Rosedale Street to Harborview Drive.


A detour route is in place and local access to businesses and residence will be maintained. Local residents that live on Stinson Avenue will be allowed access but there will be no thru traffic during the hours of the closure.

Alternating flagger controlled lane closures on Harborview Drive will continue thru October 15th.


The City of Gig Harbor and its contractor, Active Construction Inc. (ACI) are performing improvements to the intersection of Harborview Drive and Stinson Avenue.  This project will be completed in two phases.  The first phase requires the relocation of sewer, water, and stormwater pipes and will occur late summer 2021 through fall 2021.  The second phase will regrade the intersection and install a new roundabout and associated pedestrian improvements.   

The current construction work is the first phase of the project. This phase of work consists of the installation of underground utilities and is expected to run though Oct. 31. The reason for this phase of the project is to repair and relocate the existing damaged sewer main before it fails, as well as to relocate the water main and storm sewer lines. This sewer main serves 40% of the City and if it were to fail it could result in raw sewage entering the bay.

The City will suspend the project through the winter months beginning November 1, 2021 and construction will commence again for the roadway work and installation of the roundabout starting on March 1, 2022. All work is weather dependent and these dates are only approximate.

Phase 2 - Roundabout Construction

Phase 2 will begin in March 2022 when the weather improves. This phase of the project will construct a roundabout at the intersection of Harborview Drive and Stinson Avenue.

We appreciate your continued patience and understanding as the City works to construct this important capital project.

38th Avenue Improvements Phase 1 Project

Project Description:

The city is working with the consultant David Evans and Associates to finalize design work on a capital improvement project along the east side of 38th Avenue. The limits of this project are from Briarwood Lane to the southerly city limits. The work generally consists of incorporating Low Impact Development Standards (LID) for a bike lane, sidewalk, biofiltration swale, and pedestrian lighting. This project includes the first phase of improvements to provide pedestrian safety in City limits leading to two schools located just outside City limits. A grant from the Department of Ecology reimbursed some of the design costs.

The work will occur in the lane on the east side of 38th Avenue from Briarwood Lane to Goodman Middle School.  Expect temporary traffic control devices to be in place throughout the summer.


Project Schedule

  • The work during the next three weeks beginning October 25, will consist of placing drainage structures and landscape work.  Some of this work will impact travel in the northbound lane. Flaggers will temporarily direct traffic for alternating use of the southbound lane during daylight hours on weekdays.
