The project improvements will consist of replacing approximately 5,300 feet of 8-inch waterline on the south side of Starr Avenue Extension between Wynn and Stadium Roads. The existing water service connections along Starr Avenue Extension will be connected to the new 8-inch waterline.
The City of Oregon has awarded a contract to Hillabrand & Sons Construction, LLC, 5811 Woodville Road, Northwood, Ohio 43619 for the Starr Avenue Extension Waterline Improvement Project. Construction on the project is currently scheduled to begin Monday, March 23, 2020, weather permitting, and is anticipated to be completed by August.
During working hours the contractor may close Starr Avenue Extension between Wynn Road and Stadium Road to through traffic and maintain one lane of traffic through the work area for local. Due to the nature of the project, we ask that you avoid driving through the construction operation area as much as possible.
The City of Oregon has awarded a construction contract for the Navarre Avenue Waterline Replacement – Phase 1 Project starting west of Isaac Streets Drive to Lallendorf Road. Construction work is scheduled to begin in early February and should be completed by December 2020.
The project improvements will occur within the existing public right-of-way or established easements with the following work occurring between these addresses:
2701 – 3111 Navarre Lining of the existing local 8-inch waterline along the north side of Navarre Avenue with new fire hydrants and new waterline extensions across Navarre Avenue to the serve new fire hydrants along the south side of the road.
3165 - 3181 Navarre Installation of a new 8-inch waterline along the north side of Navarre Avenue with new fire hydrants and new waterline extensions across Navarre Avenue to the serve new fire hydrants along the south side of the road.
3205 – 4157 Navarre Installation of a new 8-inch waterline on both the north and south sides of Navarre Avenue with new fire hydrants.
Following all required testing, the existing water services serving all properties within the project limits will be connected to the new waterline as part of this project.
Construction plans and specifications for the project are available for review at the City of Oregon Municipal Complex at the Department of Public Service Office.

Urban runoff is a term used to describe the runoff that occurs during rain events in areas that have a high concentration of impervious surfaces, such as asphalt roadways, parking areas, sidewalks, and rooftops. Urban runoff typically contains contaminants such as sediment, nutrients, hydrocarbons, metals, and bacteria from a variety of sources within the watershed. To combat runoff contaminants, the City of Oregon is planning to construct the Urban Runoff Capture and Otter Creek Restoration Project in the Fall of 2019 through Spring of 2020 at the west end of Eastmoreland Blvd. By capturing and treating urban runoff, this project will benefit Otter Creek and the Western Basin of Lake Erie. The City of Oregon was successful in receiving a Great Lakes Restoration Initiative (GLRI) grant from the US EPA for design and construction.
The project will create an environment that mimics historic floodplain landscapes that existed prior to development in this region. Stormwater will be routed from a 43 acre urban watershed and discharged into a wetland system where natural processes such as settling, pollutant degradation, and nutrient uptake will be facilitated by the wetland vegetation established. The streambanks of Otter Creek flowing through the project area will also be stabilized using a combination of plantings and grading. Over 180 trees and shrubs and 5,000 wetland plugs will be planted in order to further establish habitat for wildlife. These improvements will be made in a neighborhood park like setting that will include a walking path and observation areas where birds and other wildlife can be viewed by park goers.
A public meeting was held on Wednesday, May 22nd, 2019 to introduce the project to Eastmoreland and Euclid Park residents. A PDF document of the meeting presentation is linked below. The conceptual site plan for the project is also linked below.
Project update photos and other information will be added to this webpage as construction begins. Please contact the Department of Public Service if you have any questions about this project.
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:
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. . A PDF document of the meeting presentation is linked below.
Please contact the Department of Public Service if you have any questions about this project.
The Pickle Road Storm Sewer Relief Ditch Project is designed to improve drainage along Pickle Road between Coy Road and Oak Tree Subdivision. Construction work is set to begin early February and should be completed by the end of September, 2018.
The project involves the replacement of existing storm sewers along the south side of Pickle Road, the west side of Flo Drive and the south side of Mary Allen Drive with larger storm sewers. A new open channel relief ditch will also be installed just west of Cardinal Bay Subdivision to provide a relief overflow path from Pickle Road to the Navarre Avenue storm sewer. In addition, an asphalt bike path will be installed along the new relief ditch between Pickle Road and Navarre Avenue.
