Water line relocation on Wylie Road underway this week

Wylie Road between Lindsey Street and Caddell Lane was closed earlier this week as a contractor for the City of Norman began relocating portions of the water line along Wylie Road. The work will require different segments of Wylie Road to be temporarily closed as different portions of the water line relocation are completed. The water line relocation in this area is expected to be completed at the end of October.

Signs are in place to direct motorists. The detour routes are Lindsey Street to Berry Road, or Lindsey Street to McGee Drive.

Questions may be directed to John Clink, capital projects manager, at 366-5424.

HISTORY OF THE PROJECT

On Monday, July 5, 2016 construction on the West Lindsey Street – 24th Avenue SW to east of Berry Road Reconstruction Project began. The estimated completion date is October 2017. This is a $28.4 Million construction project, which was awarded to Sherwood Construction Company of Tulsa, Oklahoma. The Oklahoma Department of Transportation (ODOT) is administering the construction of this project.

On August 28, 2012 the citizens of Norman approved a bond issue to finance the local share of eight projects. One of the projects is Lindsey Street from 24th Ave. SW to Berry Road. The proposed improvements include widening Lindsey Street from 3 lanes to 4 lanes with a raised median; a new bridge over Imhoff Creek, continuous sidewalks on both sides of the street; multi-modal improvements including bicycle lanes; aesthetic enhancements including decorative pavement, landscaping, and roadway lighting; underground utilities; accessibility to disabled individuals; and improved drainage system on Lindsey Street.
