This project focused on the modernization and rehabilitation of a section of US 101 in Newport, Oregon. The 9 month long project included major displacement and replacement of all major local utilities, a new storm drainage system and water quality facilities, and a water line replacement.

Elevations were improved for added traffic and drainage with complete rebuilds at a depth of 4.5 feet. The highway was widened a total of 2,000 linear feet along both north-bound and south-bound Highway 101. The scope of work also included ADA sidewalks, ramps, driveways, curbs, business entrances and accesses. In addition to the ADA accommodations, a 400-foot retaining wall with a pedestrian handrail was built with precast block.

JWF also installed a new traffic signal at the intersection of 35th and Highway 101, ensured water quality planting, cold plane pavement removal with 4-inch new asphalt surfacing, and new high visibility striping. The team met acceleration demands and completed the project on time while still making safety the top priority.
