After several months of being closed during a traffic study, traffic is flowing again down Courthouse Street.

“A special thanks to our Public Services team for re-opening the street and restoring the traffic pattern around Lower Broadway in such a timely manner,” the City of Newport wrote on Facebook today.

In addition to re-opening Court House Street to traffic, Stone Street has also been reconfigured to once again allow for two-way traffic and the temporary stop sign on Broadway at Stone Street has also been removed.

Finally, the City is reminding motorists that the stop sign at the intersection of Court House Street and Broadway (just in front of The Fastnet) has been also restored.

“As always, please be mindful of pedestrians and be sure to keep an eye out for cyclists as we reacquaint ourselves to the flow of traffic,” the City said.
