Newport Blvd Sewer Project

Newport Blvd Project Update

Post Date:01/18/2018

Construction activities continue on the Newport Blvd. Project.   They are currently working on Newport Blvd. north of Hospital Rd.  Crews are excavating a deep 20+ foot deep pit for upcoming pipebursting activities.  Travel lanes are reduced along northbound Newport Blvd.  Expect some noise and vibrations during work hours.

The k-rail concrete barriers that closed access to the Newport Blvd. off-ramp was removed and the ramp re-opened January 15.  

Offramp Open

There are a few remaining finishing work activities such as curb and gutter and re-installing a street light pole that will require the intermittent daytime closure of the off-ramp for crews to safely perform the work for the next 1-2 weeks.    

The on-ramp will remain closed for several more weeks before the ramp is completely open.


Work hours

Normal daytime work hours are 7 a.m. - 3:30 p.m. weekdays.

Project Description:

The Newport Blvd. District 6 Trunk Sewer Relief construction project will replace an existing 60 year old regional sewer pipeline with a larger sewer pipeline to increase the sewer flow capacity and reduce the risk of spills.  Construction will take place along Newport Blvd. between Pacific Coast Highway and Industrial Way in the City of Newport Beach and Pomona Ave and 17th St in the City of Costa Mesa.
