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 contributed to the slide at this location.
The City Engineering Department has reviewed the slide area and authorized crews from Public Works to conduct a cleanup of the slide at this location. This cleanup was completed on Monday afternoon and Naterlin Drive is now open to traffic. The City of Newport appreciates the patience and understanding for any inconvenience that the closure may have caused to the traveling public.
