Cliff Walk Closure: Ruggles Ave to Shepard Ave
March 28 Closure Start Date
The City of Newport’s Cliff Walk contractor, New England Building and Bridge (NEBB) will begin work on Monday, March 28, 2017, on the Cliff Walk just north of Ruggles Avenue.
The Cliff Walk will be closed 24-hours a day just north of Ruggles Avenue starting Tuesday, March 28, 2017, at 7:00 am for approximately four (4) weeks.
We anticipate approximately 250 feet of path immediately north of Ruggles Avenue being closed as the contractor works in this area to install a new concrete walking surface, rip-rap, concrete retaining wall, and drainage improvements.
Pedestrians will be detoured around the closed area utilizing Shepard Avenue, Ochre Point Avenue, and Ruggles Avenue sidewalks. Cliff Walk access points at Ruggles Avenue and Shepard Avenue will remain open.
