Corridor Concept
Newport Way Rendering
Overview
The Newport Way corridor project is a multi-year capital improvement project consisting of Design, Environmental Permitting, Right-of-Way Acquisition and ultimately construction of a new corridor between State Route 900 and SE 54th Street.  

The purpose of the project is to:
  • Improve pedestrian and bicycle facilities 
  • Improve vehicle access to neighborhoods
  • Accommodate future traffic demands 
  • Maintain and/or enhance the corridor character 
  • Provide continuous improvements throughout the corridor

See how this project fits with other projects along Newport, including private development.


Background
A corridor concept was adopted by City Council on Dec. 4, 2017.

The adopted concept described in the Design Report (and appendices) was selected based on engineering and operational analysis, as well as significant input from the community.

In 2018, the project design team prepared preliminary 60% plans

In April of 2019, following a Value Engineering Study, City Council adopted a slightly revised corridor design along the City’s recently purchased Bergsma property in an effort to reduce costs and limit the impact to Cougar Mountain. No other changes were recommended for roadway design. Learn more via this presentation, memo and watch online.


Next Steps

December 2019 — 90% design plans complete         
2020 — Secure funding for Right-of-Way Acquisition
