Online Access to City Project Information

Posted on November 30, 2016 at 6:54 AM by Communications Department

Have you ever passed by construction work beingProjectMap_SC done for the City and wonder what’s going on? There’s an easy way to check. Since 2014, the Newport News Department of Engineering has maintained a project status website that provides information about projects in design and under construction throughout the City. Accessible by selecting “Project Status Report” from the Engineering Department’s web page, this site offers a map view of the various City projects currently underway color coded by type, such as stormwater, transportation, etc. Choosing a specific project on the map will open up a text box with project details. By selecting the “more info” link in the text box, viewers can see the project schedule, estimated costs, progress made, contracts awarded, amounts paid and more. Contact information for the project manager is also posted, and citizens can call or email the project manager with questions.
