OREGON, OH (Toledo News Now) -
Three new bridges will be
built in Oregon as part of the Oregon Flood Relief Program.
Starting Monday, Bayshore
Road will be shut down for 45 days for the project, which involves taking three
existing streams and routing them to a new channel out to Lake Erie.
Oregon's Public Service
Department says the channel will improve the water quality for the lake. One
stream is located next to a road – after relocation, it will prevent erosion of
the road. The other two run through the BP-Husky refinery. The project will
help prevent flooding there.
The bridges themselves
will be around 28 feet long. They're being built so that the streams can run underneath
and form into one channel.
"Putting a much wider
channel for all three is going to help reduce flooding upstream," said Public
Service Director Paul Roman.
The other bridges will be
built for Cedar Point Road and for a railroad spurt that's owned by Norfolk
The entire project is
expected to be complete by June of 2014.
