UPDATE | Contract in hand for Sunrise Drive

It may cost a bit more than expected to shore up a section of Sunrise Drive Northeast that is in danger of slip-sliding away.

The Bainbridge Island City Council is expected to award a contract at its next meeting on July 24 for repairs along the roadway that’s been embattled by landslides.

The council will consider a $56,872 contract with Sealevel Bulkhead Builders to construct a geosynthetic retaining wall next to Sunrise Drive. Fill will also be brought in to repair a section of the road embankment.

Interim Public Works Director John Cunningham has asked the council to award the contract bid to Sealevel Bulkhead Builders.

While the cost was a bit higher than engineers’ initial estimate of $34,000, the bid from Sealevel Bulkhead Builders was the lowest bid for the project. Liden Land Development and Excavation Inc. of Poulsbo bid $66,035 and Lakeside Industries of Seattle bid $69,250.
