From City Manager Spencer Nebel
One block of Naterlin Drive at the U.S. Coast Guard Station Yaquina Bay was closed by the City of Newport late Saturday afternoon due to a slide that blocked both lanes of the street. Heavy rains and wind contributed to destabilizing a large tree on top of the slope that caused part of the hill to come down.
Naterlin Drive will remain closed to vehicular and pedestrian traffic until the weather improves. Then the debris at the base of the slide can be removed. The clean-up is scheduled for Monday.
From U.S. 101, access to all Bayfront businesses is available at SW Hurbert Street/SW Canyon Way to Bay Blvd. All other streets to S.W. Bay Boulevard and Bayfront businesses are also open. Others include Hatfield and Fogarty.
