Paving the Ways


Lower Broadway Lower Broadway Newport, never short on seemingly-endless roadway construction projects, has been making major gains on several perpetual problem areas of late. Ayrault Street, one of the most frequently dug-up roads in town in recent years, was prepped for final paving this week after multiple pipe laying phases. The street was at the top of the city's annual paving list. The America's Cup Avenue intersection at Cardines Field wrapped, with the last bit of striping applied just in time for the weekend rush. The Broadway Streetscape project continues, as it will until the end of next year. The first phase of the work is underway on the east side of Broadway from Farewell Street/Court House Way to City Hall. Broadway is now one way from Marlborough Street to Farewell Street.
