Port of Newport, city projects will impact Moore-Bay intersection

Modified: Sunday, Jul 27th, 2014

Currently, traffic traveling south on Moore Road in Newport can roll east on Bay Boulevard without stopping, but that will change when the city finishes a realignment of the intersection sometime next year. The Port of Newport also expects to begin receiving truckloads of logs next summer for shipment out of its International Terminal located off SE Bay Boulevard. (Photo by Rockne Roll)

NEWPORT — The busy intersection at SE Bay Boulevard and Moore Drive may become even more hectic next summer if projects by the city of Newport and the Port of Newport occur as planned.

Tentatively, the city hopes to bid its drainage improvement and road realignment projects next spring, and begin the six-month construction period during the summer. It will include reconfiguring the Bay-Moore intersection and dredging Yaquina Bay drainage outfall areas located near the Embarcadero Resort and Port Dock 7.

Simultaneously, the Port of Newport plans to have Teevin Bros. begin transporting raw timber through the intersection for storage at a log yard the company wants to build adjacent to the port’s International Terminal off Bay Boulevard.
