West Half of 24th Avenue SW and Lindsey Street Intersection to close Friday

Beginning Friday after the morning drive time, the west half of the 24th Avenue SW and Lindsey Street Intersection will be closed temporarily to allow reconstruction of the pavement on the western side of the intersection.

The intersection will remain open to traffic throughout this phase of the intersection reconstruction, which is expected to be complete by mid-September. Northbound and southbound traffic will be shifted to the east side of 24th Avenue SW through the intersection and will be reduced to one lane in each direction.

Signs will be placed to direct motorists.

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.
