Navarre Avenue Safety Improvement Project

(LUC-2-21.72 – PID 118234)

The Navarre Avenue Safety Improvement Project involves implementing various safety measures along Navarre Avenue (SR 2) between Isaac Streets Drive and Coy Road to reduce crashes and improve safety.  The City received a $5 million dollar safety grant from the Federal Highway Administration through the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) for the project.  Construction on the project is currently planned to start in August 2025 and should be fully completed by July 2026.

The project will include the construction of a center median along with relocating one traffic signal and adding two new traffic signals.  The traffic signals are proposed to be installed at the Harbor Drive, Kingston Court/Planet Fitness, and Kroger Drive intersections.  The new traffic signals will have bulb-outs to allow U-turn movements and will include crosswalks with pedestrian signals.  The project will also include asphalt resurfacing, new pavement markings and sign upgrades along with incorporating aesthetic streetscape elements like the prior median installation phases.  Throughout construction, at least one lane of traffic will be maintained in each direction allowing travel through the construction zone.  Access to all adjacent properties will be maintained unless otherwise arranged in advance.

We welcome your questions and comments.  To ensure the proposed project is viable and successful, Oregon is seeking comments from the public about the social, environmental, and economic impacts of this proposed project.  To ensure your comments may be considered during project development, please submit them no later than Friday, March 29, 2024 via email to  or call the Public Service Department at (419) 698-7047.
