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 has constructed the Urban Runoff Capture and Otter Creek Restoration Project. This project is located at the western end of Eastmoreland Blvd, west of Wheeling Street. Construction began in Fall of 2019 and was completed in Summer of 2020. 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 obtaining a $499,997 Great Lakes Restoration Initiative (GLRI) grant from the US EPA for design and construction.
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.

The Navarre Avenue Safety Improvement Project involves implementing various safety and aesthetic improvements along Navarre Avenue between I-280 and Isaac Streets Drive to reduce crashes and improve safety. The City has received grant funding from the Federal Highway Administration through the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) for the project.

The project will include the construction of a median along Navarre Avenue with bulb out and median openings to accommodate U-turns and emergency access. The project will include a public access road between Wheeling Street and Navarre Avenue, located northeast of the intersection, with right-in and right-out access to Navarre Avenue (SR 2) to serve businesses and provide emergency vehicles access accordingly. The project will also involve upgrading traffic signals, the addition of a second left turn lane for southbound Wheeling Street, resurfacing to improve pavement skid resistance, waterline replacement and other related work. Work on the project is expected to be completed by the end of November, 2017.
Prior to the roadway construction, utility contractors will begin working within the city’s right-of-way along Navarre Avenue and Wheeling Street to install conduits to bury existing overhead utilities that cross the roadway. This work began in early February 2017.
