The City of Port Angeles faces several infrastructure challenges related to its aging water and wastewater systems, road networks, and bridges. The city’s water and wastewater systems require significant upgrades and maintenance to ensure reliable service to residents and businesses. Additionally, the city’s road networks require continuous repairs and improvements to address issues such as potholes, drainage, and congestion. Some of the city’s bridges also require significant repairs and rehabilitation to ensure public safety and continued functionality.
Sample Highlights from the Capital Improvement Plan
Project Start Year
Project Spend Total
2028 Pavement Preservation
This project includes patching, chip sealing, and HMA overlay to distressed pavement areas.
8th/10th Street Bike Lanes
“Bike lanes and shared route from 10th and “”I”” to 8th and “”A”” using existing road network. Project dependent on
obtaining grant funding.”
1st/Front Pedestrian Enhancements
“This project will conduct a crossing study along the corridors of E 1st St, Front St, and Marine Dr. The crossing study
will be utilized to identify locations to receive and implement enhanced crossing treatments. Treatments include but
not limited to rectangular rapid flashing beacons RRFBs, curb extension, advanced signage, channelization. A total of
eight intersections are assumed to be part of the scope of the project, but additional crossings may be added if resources
allow, following the site study.
Existing curb ramps within the identified crossing locations of the project to receive enhanced treatment that are not
ADA compliant will be brought up to compliance. This project is dependent on obtaining a HISP grant.”
Valley Street Culvert Crossing
“The project will start with an alternative analysis to determine
the preferred method to address the failing bridge, alternatives
to consider include bridge replacement, and property
acquisition and bridge removal. Should replacement be warranted, the project will remove and replace the expired and
antiquated Valley Creek Bridge with a new concrete box culvert designed to meet modern fish-passage requirements.
The bridge provides sole access to properties and residences on the east side of Valley Creek. It is unknown if this
project could qualify for grant funding as a fish passage project. A review of potential grant opportunities is proposed in
the near future.”
Marine Drive Bulkhead Repairs
“The project will start with an alternative analysis to determine
the preferred method to repair or replace the wooden bulkhead
and repair the walkway adjacent to Marine Drive along the Port
Angeles Marina between B and E streets. The bulkhead is failing
due to age, storm and water damage. The initial agreement with the Port of Port Angeles, presented to Council in 2013,
indicated cost sharing of the match portion with the Port for a STP design/ construction grant. The City proposes to
work on the project for the Port of Port Angeles, but the Port will provide the match to STP funds. Due to the high cost
of fixing the entire length of the bulkhead, an analysis will compare the benefit/costs of fixing the most deteriorated
areas compared to a full scale replacement. The initial analysis will occur prior to TR0221 Marine Dr Paving to
determine if coordination of these projects is feasible. Design and construction is unfunded at an estimated $2.95

How to Read a Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) for Business Development?
When a city, municipality or state issues a Capital Improvement Plan (CIP), it can be overwhelming and daunting, but there are a few key things you need to investigate. Let’s start with the definition of CIP – A Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) contains all the individual capital projects, equipment purchases, and major studies for a local government; in conjunction with construction and completion schedules, and in consort with financing plans. The plan provides a working blueprint for sustaining and improving the community’s infrastructures. It coordinates strategic planning, financial capacity, and physical development. A CIP stands at the epicenter of a government’s Planning, Public Works, and Finance departments. When a CIP is issued, it typically includes the following information:
- A listing of the capital projects or equipment to be purchased
- The projects ranked in order of preference
- The plan for financing the projects
- A timetable for the construction or completion of the project
- Justification for the project
- Explanation of expenses for the project
Now, for business development, while the capital plan is interesting, the capital program is for capital expenditures that extends five to ten years beyond the capital budget. Knowing the difference is important so you can influence upcoming program versus just responding to an RFP. If reading the CIP makes your head explode, or you want to save time, Request a Demo of Citylitics CIP dashboard with over 20,000 CIPs from USA and Canada.
