The City of Newport is holding an informal Open House for the upcoming Big Creek Force Main project. The Open House is next Wednesday, April 9th, at Newport City Hall in the Council Chambers, between 5:30 and 7:00pm.
The Big Creek Force Main project will construct a new pipe for pumping wastewater to the Big Creek Pump Station, located at Agate Beach Wayside. This project will allow the pump and support equipment to be replaced in the near future. Once completed, it will substantially increase its pumping capacity and eliminate overflows into Big Creek.
Construction is expected to start in late April or early May, and continue for 3-4 months. A portion of the project will occur on NW Oceanview Drive between Agate Beach Wayside and NW 17th Street. Traffic delays and/or detours can be expected in this area during construction.
Anyone with questions or concerns about this project can contact Olaf Sweetman, Assistant City Engineer, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 541-574-3376.
