Traffic Revisions at Newport Hospital Start Aug. 12

Starting Monday, Aug. 12, through Friday, Aug. 23, there will be traffic revisions near Samaritan Pacific Communities Hospital due to construction work at the corner of Ninth and Bay streets. 

The diagonal section of Ninth Street that connects to Highway 101 at the south end of the hospital campus will be controlled by a traffic flagger. There will be no access to the hospital from this section of Ninth Street.

A flagger will grant access to patients of Fresenius Kidney Care, Pacific Eye Associates and Silver Falls Dermatology clinics only during this time. 

Hospital patients and visitors will still be able to access the hospital from Bay Street via Highway 101, and from Ninth Street, but traffic will be flagger-controlled on both streets. Traffic from 11th Street will not be affected.

We apologize for any inconvenience. These closures are due to public improvements of sidewalks, curbs and gutters.
