The City of Newport is constructing two new sewer lift stations, at NE 48th Street and NW 68th Street. The new lift stations will provide increased capacity, reliability, and efficiency of the wastewater system in this area.
Construction is scheduled to begin February 4, 2019 and be completed in the early spring of 2020. During this period there will be lane closures and lane shifts on Highway 101 between NE 48th and NW 68th Streets.
NW 68th Street will be restricted to local traffic only.
Please pay attention to the flaggers who will direct traffic during daylight hours and use caution when driving through this section of the highway.
