Railroad Pl, Newton St, and Delta St Project

Community Impacts

Most of the sanitary sewer and water system has reached or surpassed its functional life and has significantly deteriorated in recent years. This project will replace mains with better and longer lasting products and install storm drains. The expansion of SE Newton St from Doone Ave SE to Olmstead Pl will create a direct connection from 384th St SE to State Route 202/Railroad Ave, which will improve traffic flow within the downtown area. 


August 2020 through February 2021

Project Elements

  • New pavement on SE Newton St, Reinig Pl SE, Maple Ave cul-de-sac, and Railroad Pl
  • New curbs and gutters (in most sections)
  • New ADA accessibility ramps and sidewalks along SE Newton St
  • Replacing existing water and sewer pipes
  • Added water, sewer, and stormwater mains in some areas

Short-Term Effects for Residents

  • The project will move from street to street and will not affect the entire neighborhood at any one time.
  • Temporary traffic stops or street closures may be required. Flaggers will be present. 
  • Some sections of roadway may be temporarily closed during paving. Signage will be on roadways prior to the start of paving.
  • Occasionally, a driveway or roadway may be temporarily blocked, in which case the affected resident(s) would need to temporarily use approved street parking in nearby areas until work is completed. Notice will be given prior to closure.
  • In areas under construction, on-street parking will be restricted.
