Public Service Project Information

In the Fall of 2020 the City of Oregon is expected to award a contract for work related to the improvement of existing sanitary sewers in the South Shore Park subdivision of the City.  This work will take place on all streets North of Bay Shore Road, between Lakeview Avenue and E. Baywood Drive.  Sewers in this area are approaching 60 years old and require rehabilitation in order to maintain function, capacity, and prevent rain and ground water infiltration.  This work is expected to begin in the Fall of 2020 and will include the inspection and lining of existing sanitary sewers, manholes, and service laterals within the public right-of-way, see the below link to the project map.  This work will greatly improve the overall condition of the sewers, including the sanitary sewer lateral within the right-of-way.

The City has received grant funding from the Federal Highway Administration through the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) for the Navarre/Coy Intersection Improvement Project (LUC-2-22.51, PID 109596).

The project consists of the following improvements to the Navarre Avenue and Coy Road Intersection to reduce crashes and congestion at this intersection:

  • Installing a median along Navarre Avenue at the Coy Road Intersection with accommodations for U-turns
  • Adding a right turn lane for Westbound Navarre
  • Adding a right turn lane for Northbound Coy
  • Adding an additional thru-right lane for southbound Coy and extending the lane to Dustin Road
  • Replacing the existing traffic signal with all new signal poles and traffic signal equipment to improve visibility and accommodate pedestrians including adding supplemental signal heads, signal backplates and ADA compliant pedestrian signals.
  • Replacing the existing Coy Road bridge over Amolsch Ditch north of Navarre Avenue to accommodate additional pavement width and sidewalks
  • Resurfacing the pavement within project limits
  • Upgrading lane control and directional signage, including adding overhead lane-use signs.
  • Eliminating some drives near the intersection
  • Adding landscape and streetscape elements like the Navarre / Wheeling project

An approximate 45-day closure of Coy Road between Navarre Avenue and Starr Avenue is anticipated to allow for the replacement of the Coy Road Bridge over Amolsch Ditch. A detour will be established for the closure and vehicular and pedestrian access will be maintained to all abutting properties during the closure. Otherwise, traffic will be maintained throughout construction. For Navarre Avenue, a minimum of one-lane of traffic in each direction will be maintained at all times.

Actual construction on the project is currently scheduled for 2021.

A public meeting was held on Wednesday, October 23, 2019 to present and discuss the currently proposed Navarre Avenue and Coy Road Intersection Safety Improvement Project with the general public, residents, business owners, and public officials, and to solicit public comments regarding the proposed project. .

The Oregon Flood Relief and Erosion Control Project (OFRECP) was constructed in 2013 – 2015 along the west side of Wynn Road and the south side of Cedar Point Road in Oregon. The project relocated Amolsch Driftmeyer Ditch around the BP Refinery and combined it with two other drainage systems, Johlin Ditch and Heckman Ditch. The project also filled in the former Heckman Ditch alignment along the west side of Wynn Road, which was causing road failures due to erosion. Because the project relocated and filled existing ditches, mitigation of these areas was required by Section 404 and 401 of the Clean Water Act. The Army Corp of Engineers and Ohio EPA are responsible for governing these permits.
