About Oregon City Street Division

Street Crew



  • Maintains, plans, and improves the transportation system, including roads, sidewalks, bike paths, roadside landscaping, public stairways, and the Municipal Elevator
  • Improves public safety through proper street signs, striping, and traffic control devices (stop signs and signals)
  • Sweeps City streets
  • Implements pavement maintenance program

Street maintenance is funded by state gas taxes and the pavement maintenance utility fee.  In addition to maintaining the current transportation system, the Street Division works with Engineering Services to provide transportation system improvements outside of those obligated by new development that add system capacity or level of service to accommodate a growing population.  The Transportation System Plan and its CIP identifies and prioritizes needs and construction projects that are funded by grants and System Development Charges (SDCs) (collected when building permits are issued).
