This major mixed-use development in Newport, Oregon on the central Oregon coast is a 200-acre sustainable community bordering the campus of the Oregon Coast Community College. Eventually, the project will include specialty shops, parks, apartments, cottages and single-family homes.

With multiple stakeholders – three right of way owners, the college, the City of Newport, ODOT and the developer – the project complexity increased. The developer relied heavily on JWF to manage the budget, keep the project on schedule, manage multiple subcontractors, handle regulatory overlays and manage vendor subcontracts.

The first phase of the project required improvements to Highway  101 including widening, protected turn lanes and repaving. This route is a major coastal route and required special care to reduce impacts to the traveling public during construction. JWF also constructed 40th Street, a new access road linking the South Beach development to the College and Highway 101 and the infrastructure of Wilder Phase 1 including the streets, sidewalks, lighting, curbs and gutters. In addition, there was open trench placement of 2,137 feet of 2-inch to 8-inch diameter HDPE waterlines, 2,075 feet of 8-inch and 12-inch ductile iron water pipelines, 7,275 feet of PVC sanitary sewer pipelines, 3,103 feet of PVC storm sewer pipelines, culverts, utilities and miscellaneous site improvements.
