The Newport Corridor Improvements project replaces the failing storm drain system along Newport Avenue, bringing City water, storm, sewer and roadway infrastructure up to current standards, increasing safety, connectivity and mobility for all users of this corridor.
The Newport Corridor Improvements project addresses a failing and deficient storm drain system serving the South Awbrey drainage basin while simultaneously replacing aging water and sewer infrastructure and bringing the entire corridor up to current standards. The project supports the City Council’s goal to “plan and implement robust and resilient infrastructure investments.”
These improvements to the corridor ( which runs along Newport Ave from College Way to 9th St.) follows the vision of the City’s 2015 Central Westside Plan to improve safety, connectivity and mobility for all users of this major east/west corridor.
This project is funded by the Clean Water State Revolving Fund (CWSRF).
- Functional and reliable infrastructure
- Improved safety & connectivity for all users
- Improvement to the quality, and reduction in the quantity, of stormwater discharged to the Deschutes River
