Southeast Newport Way

The Southeast Newport Way project aims is to improve safety for bicyclists and pedestrians by adding a multipurpose path on the north side of the roadway and a bike lane on the south side, along with other improvements, from Somerset Boulevard Southeast to 150th Avenue Southeast.

Benefits

Currently, there are no sidewalk or bike lanes along this stretch of Newport Way. People walking and biking must navigate narrow shoulders, with no crosswalks, making it difficult to safely reach destinations such as churches, the community center, library, parks and schools. The planned improvements will make it safer for pedestrians, bicyclists and drivers. Project details:

  • Project length is 0.85 mile
  • A 10-foot wide mixed-use path for pedestrians and cyclists along the northern side of the roadway and a 5-foot bike lane along the southern side of the roadway
  • Nine new retaining walls, replacement of some sections of guardrail, new lighting, and signage
  • New drainage infrastructure to meet the city stormwater code, and other utility improvements
  • During construction, a detour will be in place for local traffic, construction hours will be limited and flaggers will control work zones. 

Schedule

Finalize project design in late 2018; start construction in spring 2019.

Funding

Current project budget allocation is approximately $9.7 million
