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 City's contractor J. Malever continues to make progress on the Oregon Street Drainage Improvement Project.  On Friday, June 5, 2020, the project area will shift west from Hardy Avenue to both intersections of Morris Avenue. Once the shift occurs, a portion of Oregon Street and both Morris Avenue intersections will be unavailable to commuters and pedestrians temporarily.

Temporary constructions signs, detours signage, and barricades will change and reflect the upcoming project shift over the weekend. Constituents will notice the contractor installing utilities the week of June 8, 2020. On-street parking will be restricted during project hours. Project hours are 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Prior to closing the Morris Avenue intersections, the Hardy Avenue intersection and a portion of Oregon Street that leads to Hampton Avenue will reopen. Constituents who live on Hardy and Morris Avenue near Orlando Gifted Academy can utilize Hampton Avenue to enter and exit the neighborhood. Residents and visitors who access the neighborhood through Hampton Avenue will be unable to proceed past Morris Avenue where work is on-going.

Hardy Avenue and Morris Avenue will not be out service simultaneously

The City's Public Works Department and the City’s contractor J. Malever continue to monitor the COVID-19 Pandemic and the potential reopening of the Orange County Public School System. Parents, visitors, and staff may use Hampton Avenue and Hardy Avenue to access Orlando Gifted Academy. Please adhere to the temporary traffic signals installed on both Hardy and Morris Avenue near Orlando Gifted Academy. Public Works and J. Malever will continue to work with Orlando Gifted Academy, Orange County Public Schools, and Orlando Police Department to maintain safety in the area.

Parents and commuters should prepare for potential delays that may increase commute times.

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.
