Why did the Newport resident cross the road? That’s easy! To attend an open house and get up to date on a new multiple crosswalk project on Highway 101 from the downtown out toward Walmart.
City Public Works Director Tim Gross says the project includes the installation of new crosswalks, curb extensions (bull noses) and pedestrian refuges (islands) half-way across the crosswalk.
The open house will be staffed by city officials who can explain the project, the design, costs and any questions anyone may have.
The open house is scheduled for this evening, July 2, 6 to 7:30pm at Newport City Hall, in the city council chambers (the big room).
