Public Works

The City of Newport Public Works Department maintains the city’s 1.1 square miles of streets, water, and sewer services for its citizens and visitors.

A Small Works Roster has been established for the purpose of notifying qualified contractors of pending Public Works projects and may be utilized whenever the City of Newport seeks to construct any project when the estimated cost is less than $350,000 for non-federally funded or $250,000 for federally funded projects.
