The project will lessen incidents of flooding and assist in the improvement of stormwater quality in the immediate and surrounding neighborhoods.

The City's Public Works Department contracted J. Malever Construction Company to make stormwater drainage improvements on Oregon Street. The project area is between Fern Creek Avenue to Hampton Avenue. 

During the project, the contractor will install a new 66-inch stormwater pipe and connect it to an existing 108-inch stormwater pipe located within the intersection of Hampton Avenue that outfalls to Lake Rowena. Additional improvements will be made to previously identified sidewalk panels, curbing and sanitary sewer laterals. Completion of the project will lessen incidents of flooding and assist in the improvement of stormwater quality in the immediate and surrounding neighborhoods.

 We expect to complete the project in twelve months.

The project will begin at the intersection of Hampton Avenue and Oregon Street, traveling west towards Fern Creek Avenue. There will be traffic pattern changes to Orlando Gifted Academy's student pick-up and drop-off throughout the project. There will be times when a driveway or intersection is temporarily unavailable. However, homeowners will have access to their driveway throughout the project’s duration.

Solid waste, recycling, mail, and other services will continue as scheduled. Should an emergency occur, first responders and emergency vehicles will have priority access.  Project hours are 7 am to 5 pm Monday through Friday. Unforeseen circumstances and adverse weather can create delays that increase the project's duration. Unforeseen circumstances can create opportunities for weekend and overnight work.
