Tecumseh Road to close Monday between 84 Avenue NE and 96 Avenue NE

Tecumseh Road between 84th Avenue NE and 96th Avenue NE will close at approximately 8 a.m. Monday for installation of a large reinforced concrete box across the road.  The drainage structure is located about one third of a mile east of 84th Avenue NE, and Tecumseh Road will be closed in both directions at this location.

HISTORY OF THE PROJECT:
The Tecumseh Road Reconstruction Project is one of nine City of Norman CDBG-Disaster Relief Projects (CDBG-DR) in east Norman. The City of Norman applied for grants through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), administered by the Oklahoma Department of Commerce (ODOC), and received approximately $17 million dollars to repair roads impacted by the 2012 wildfire and 2013 tornado debris removal. The projects will update the stormwater culverts to meet current City of Norman design standards, widen and reconstruct the roadways with a stabilized base and new asphalt surface, clear the rights-of-way of vegetation, and realign the roadway in some locations. All nine projects have varied construction schedules and are anticipated to be completed by March of 2018.  Motorists will be notified as the various projects begin construction. Atkins North America is administering the construction of these projects on behalf of the City of Norman.
The list of projects includes:
108th Avenue SE – Etowah Road to SH-9E
120th Avenue SE – Etowah Road to SH-9E
