News Release
UPDATE: Firefighters Dispatched to Gas Leak Near Providence Newberg. - 07/15/21

UPDATE: NW Natural has mitigated the gas leak. Providence Drive and Highway 99W have both REOPENED to traffic. Providence Newberg Medical Center is now available to take new patients and visitors. Evacuations have all been lifted and everyone can return back to their buildings and homes. Please use caution in the area as crews will remain on scene. 

On July 15 at 5:56 p.m., firefighters from Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue were dispatched to a gas leak at a construction site adjacent to Providence Newberg Medical Center off Highway 99W and Providence Drive.

Highway 99W at Providence Drive is CLOSED in both directions to all traffic and people seeking medical care at Providence Newberg Hospital will need to divert to another nearby hospital until the gas line is repaired and the scene is deemed safe.

We understand this may cause inconvenience and appreciate the cooperation. Safety is our highest priority.

NW Natural is working as quickly as possible to repair the gas line. It’s not clear when the repairs will be complete.

Oregon State Police, Oregon Department of Transportation, Newberg-Dundee Police Department, and Washington County Consolidated Communications Agency (911 dispatch) have assisted with this incident.

An updated notification will be sent out as soon as the scene is clear and can safely return to normal operations and access to all traffic.
