The City of Coos Bay does municipal construction projects to maintain and improve the city and better serve residents.
In December 2016, the City broke ground for an expansion and upgrade to the existing Wastewater Treatment Plant No. 2, located in Empire at S Empire Boulevard and Fulton Avenue. This project replaces and upgrades the current treatment plant, providing better water quality and is able to meet future needs of the community. The plant was officially opened on October 3, 2018 with a formal ribbon cutting ceremony.

Projects that will be starting soon
Eastside Safe Routes to School
The City, Coos Bay School District, and Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) partnered on a Safe Routes to School project to provide safer pedestrian access to and from Millicoma School. The project location extends from Millicoma School (2nd Ave.) to the Isthmus Slough Bridge. The project improvements include storm infrastructure, sidewalks, accessibility ramps, marked crosswalks, and rapid flash beacons. The City applied for and was awarded a $2 million Safe Routes to Schools grant from ODOT to partially fund the project. The project schedule is still currently being worked out with the contractor, but is expected to begin in April 2020.
4th Street Pedestrian Safety Improvements
Construction of the 4th Street Pedestrian Safety Improvement Project (Phase I) is also expected to begin in April 2020, which includes reconstruction of the roadway, new traffic lights, bumpouts, new pedestrian crossings including rapid flash beacons, and ADA compliant sidewalks. The project location is within the Coos Bay Urban Renewal District and extends from Commercial Avenue to Donnelly Avenue. The City has partnered with the Coos Bay North Bend Water Board for the replacement of a water main in the same area. The City intends to complete similar improvements to 4th Street from Market Avenue to Commercial Avenue and Donnelly to Elrod at a later date (Phase 2).
