Kitsap Transit selects construction company for Bainbridge Bike Barn makeover

Kitsap Transit has approved a plan for a major makeover of its Bike Barn at the Bainbridge Island Ferry Terminal in Winslow.

The board of commissioners for the transit agency unanimously approved the construction bid of $346,722 for the project at the board’s meeting Tuesday.

The contract for the project will go to D.P. Wain Construction in Silverdale.

Two bids were received for the work, with the other bid being submitted by Olympic Peninsula Construction.

D.P. Wain Construction was the low bidder; the bid from Olympic Peninsula Construction came in at $363,638.

Kitsap Transit’s cost estimate for completing the project was $361,790.

Kitsap Transit officials said the rehabilitation of the Bainbridge Bike Barn will include upgrades for disabled users, as well as safety improvements. The project includes new lockers, benches, bike racks and enclosures, in addition to new canopies and improvements to interior and exterior walls.

The project went out to bid twice. The first invitation for bids, in October, resulted in all bids being deemed as nonresponsive by Kitsap Transit officials.

The work went out to a second bid in late November.

The project will be financed by local dollars and a grant from the Federal Transit Administration.
