Newport updating Transportation System Plan

Community input sought during process

The city of Newport and the Oregon Department of Transportation are updating the Transportation System Plan, which is a long-range plan that all future transportation improvements in the city are based on. 

The plan will guide how the city develops and invests in its transportation system to meet the current and future needs of Newport and the surrounding areas. It helps determine which projects, policies and programs may receive funding. 

The city wants input from its residents. This input will factor into how future dollars should be spent. 

There are several upcoming opportunities to provide input into the TSP. From now through Dec. 13, an online open house is scheduled. Information regarding the open house is available at 

On Saturday, Nov. 21, at 10 a.m., an interactive virtual workshop will be held. Register at
