US 20 CLOSURES

ROGUE EXPANSION UPDATE
4/20/2016 Construction is underway. Below is a map of the area currently restricted; please note that during this phase of construction the service dock will be temporarily inaccessable, but the boat ramp is open.
4/8/2016 Initial construction has begun on the Rogue expansion at the Port of Newport in South Beach. Areas have been marked off where the expansion will occur. Dry camping availability will be impacted, however, approximately fifteen spots will remain available in the northeast corner of the old dry camp lot, and additional spaces will be made available further north on Marine Science Drive toward NOAA by April 16th. The RV Park and Annex will not be affected by the construction and the Port encourages fishermen to make reservations early. Impacts on the multi-use area will continue through the end of June. When completed, the old decommissioned boat launch will be filled and paved over connecting the dry camping area with the House of Spirits parking lot. This should provide greater dry camping after the Phase 1 construction is completed. Loyalty Days activities are scheduled to take place in the Boat Trailer Parking lot from April 25th to May 2nd, 2016. Please follow this website for continual updates.
ROGUE BREWERY EXPANSION
Rogue Brewing and the Port of Newport executed a Lease on March 26th allowing Rogue to expand a total of 43k sf over five years. The first phase will be 24k sf and will be begin this April. The expansion will replace cold storage lost as part of the bottling expansion in 2015. The agreement includes significant improvements to other parts of South Beach including the filling in of the decommissioned boat launch and creating new multi-use space between the current dry camping lot and the House of Spirts parking lot. This space will create new viewing points of the recreational marina which is one of the best views of the Yaquina Bay bridge in Newport. The port will continue to post updates on our website showing the progress of the project. View the conceptual site plan HERE.
