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 completely new storm drainage system and water quality facilities, as well as, 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 2000 linear feet along both north bound and south bound Hwy 101. All new ADA sidewalks, ramps, driveways, curbs, business entrances and accesses were built. Along with the new ADA accommodations, a 400-foot retaining wall was added with a pedestrian handrail. The retaining wall was built with new precast block.
The JWF crew also installed a new and modern traffic signal at the intersection of 35th and Hwy 101, ensured water quality planting, cold plane pavement removal with 4-inch new asphalt surfacing, and new high vis striping. The team met acceleration demands and completed the project on time while still making safety the top priority.
