Update April 4, 2020: Construction is scheduled to begin early April 2020, and continue through late November. During this construction period, traffic traveling on Newport Way from 150th Ave to Allen Road will be one way westbound, with eastbound detours along Allen Road and Somerset Blvd (see map below). This traffic revision will be in effect 24 hours a day, 7 days a week during construction. This will allow the project to be completed several months earlier than the previous estimate.
The project will be substantially complete by late November 2020, but final paving and striping will be postponed until spring 2021 when the weather is drier.
Construction begins early April, completing by November 2020. See "Current Status" for details.
We are a group of neighbors working together to promote the construction of a safe sidewalk and bike lanes along a dangerous stretch of Newport Way that connects Tyee Middle School, Edgebrook Swimming Pool, the Community Center, the Library, Eastgate Park, Aldersgate Church and Day Care Center. More information can be found on the "About" page.

After many years of work and community support, our project is about to be realized! We will remain an active group until the ribbon cutting of our new Newport Way Sidewalk that will link our communities together safely for generations to come. Please join our group and support our priority of Newport Way sidewalks - for a safer community.
