About the Harborview Drive/Stinson Avenue Intersection Improvement Project  

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 Harborview Drive/Stinson Avenue Intersection Improvement 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.
