Port of Newport

An Authentic Working Waterfront That Invites You To Come And Play

First NOAA MOC-P Construction Contracts Awarded to Local Contractors

The first construction contracts for the NOAA MOC-P Homeport Project have been awarded to Newport-based contractors Road & Driveway Company and Western States Electrical Construction.

Road & Driveway Company will be demolishing the existing site structures, fish ponds and channels, and then grading the site in anticipation of the construction of NOAA buildings and site improvements this summer. The work scope also includes new sewer and water services to an existing Port facility.

Western States Electrical Construction will be installing a new electrical service to an existing Port facility adjacent to the NOAA site. This new service is needed since the current electrical source is fed from a structure that needs to be demolished.

Mobilization began on January 18 and the "early work" will be completed by April 15, 2010.
