POULSBO — Downtown Poulsbo has a new place for visitors to go, and just in time.
New restrooms arrived at Poulsbo’s Muriel Iverson Williams Waterfront Park on Nov. 20 and city officials say they predict the restrooms will be open in time for Julefest on Dec. 2.
The $235,000 restrooms were fabricated by the Oregon-based Public Restroom Company. Manufactured in two halves, the restrooms were shipped via lowboy trailer to the park where a crane from Millican Crane Service lifted each half and lowered them onto a concrete slab.
Once fastened in place, all that was left to do was make the pathways to the buildings and connect the water and power, Public Works Superintendent Mike Lund said.
“They’re going to be really nice when it’s all said and done,” Lund said. “We’re just waiting on the weather right now.”
