One unique design feature of this street beautification project is a sidewalk with inlaid bronze plaques and interpretive sites on Newport's fishing industry. Over a hundred plaques memorialize people from the Newport community that have been lost at sea. Interpretive sites and benches are provided along the way for families, peers, and tourists.
The pathway is complemented by an extensive landscaping plan that showcases native coastal plant materials. Irrigation systems, street lighting, new curb and gutter, commercial driveways, and an ornate fence have been integrated into the design to provide easy maintenance and an attractive appearance.
