Newport: NE 20th repaving project through Friday – involves Fred Meyer access on NE 20th and Crestview
If you’re planning on shopping at Fred Meyer tonight after 7:30pm, try to use their Highway 101 entrance. City work crews are repaving Northeast 20th along the northern border of the store’s property. Public Works Director Tim Gross says it’s a busy area but they need the public’s cooperation to get the job done as quickly and as efficiently as possible.
Elsewhere on NE 20th Gross says they’re taking off a thin top layer of asphalt of road surface and then will come right behind and put down new pavement. Friday crews will be finishing up NE 20th and Crestview Circle. Gross is asking affected residents to please don’t park on the street because they can’t lay pavement if there’s something parked on it.
