Port of Newport

An Authentic Working Waterfront That Invites You To Come And Play

International Terminal Shipping Facility

The Port of Newport is currently obtaining financing to construct a 9-acre shipping facility on the northeast corner of  Newport's local on the federal Marine Corridor SystemMcLean Point. This would provide the Port the opportunity to lease the facility to a terminal operator to  facilitate agricultural exports and near-shore barging of agricultural products from the mid-Willamette Valley and waste paper material from southern California.

The $6.5-million project would include removal of 40,000 cubic yards of clean organic material, development of wetlands mitigation site, wastewater utility extensions, water redundancy lines, asphalting, storwater collection and treatment, fencing and a small work shack. The site is currently zoned industrial.

The Port received notice on October 27, 2015 that it received a U.S. Dept. of Transportation TIGER grant in an amount of $2-million toward the project.

This web page will contain information related to the project including documents that would be utilized in financing efforts. For further questions about the facility, please contact Kevin Greenwood, General Manager, (541) 265-7758.
