Nearly $3 million approved for Oregon road projects

Posted: Updated:
Monday, Oregon City Council approved nearly $3 million for road projects.

"This is the biggest road program the city of Oregon has ever experienced," Oregon Mayor Mike Seferian said.

He says there are about 12 major projects on the list, from resurfacing to intersection improvements.

Seaman from Stadium, east to the city limits will get work, as well as, Cedar Point Road between Stadium and Norden.

City leaders say there is no doubt this year's brutal and seemingly unending winter played a role.  But some of these projects have been in the works or on the radar for years.

"The desire to fix some of these roads was there 5 or 6 years ago, but the funds weren't there," Mayor Seferian said.

For drivers the news is exciting.

"They really need to fix them," Richard Connolly a local driver said.

"We always take different ways just to avoid them," Jennifer Stewart, an area driver said.  "It's hard because they're everywhere."

The Mayor says it won't cost the taxpayers more money because this is coming from the city's general fund.

It's what city leaders and drivers are calling a win-win.
