Boyd Street between Chautauqua Avenue and Elm Avenue reduced to one lane in each direction beginning Tuesday

Boyd Street, from just west of Chautauqua Avenue to east of Elm Avenue, will be reduced to one lane in each direction after the
morning drive Tuesday for the annual sewer maintenance project. Sewer replacement in this segment of Boyd should be complete by April 21 if weather cooperates.

All traffic in both directions will merge into the outer lanes of Boyd Street. Southbound traffic on Elm Avenue will only be able
to turn right on Boyd.  Motorists will not be able to turn left at Elm Avenue or Boyd Street.

After completion of this phase of the project, the lane closure will move east to the road segment from Elm to University. The work should be fully complete by the end of April.

Questions can be directed to Charlie Thomas, project manager, 366-5443. The contractor for Norman Utilities Authority is Urban Contractors of Oklahoma City.

The Sewer Maintenance Project is an annual $2.2 million sewer replacement project.  It is funded by the $5/month sewer maintenance fee paid by utility customers, as approved by voters in 2001. The project replaces old damaged sewer lines and manholes in the project area.  The total project is scheduled to be complete by May of this year.
