West Main St. Bridge and Brookhaven Creek Bridge Nov. 21

On Wednesday, November 21, West Main Street and Brookhaven Creek Bridge will be reopened to traffic. The West Main Street roadway and Brookhaven Creek Bridge opening will be completed ahead of schedule without additional cost to the project. There will be ongoing roadway and creek channel construction; however, West Main Street and Brookhaven Creek Bridge will remain open to thru traffic at all times.             
Future changes to traffic configurations will be announced as they are scheduled. Questions about the project may be directed to Chris Serrano at 405-366-5265 or chris.serrano@normanok.gov

The Main Street Bridge Project was awarded on June 4, 2018 by the Oklahoma Department of Transportation (ODOT). The successful bidder was Silver Star Construction of Moore, Oklahoma, with a low bid of $4,905,000.  The project includes replacing a structurally deficient bridge structure with a triple-cell reinforced concrete box along with eco-friendly channel improvements. Construction began on August 13, 2018 with an expected completion date in July 2019. On August 14, 2018 Main Street Bridge collapsed as a result of higher than usual volumes of water caused by the frequent rain events. 
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 the Main Street Bridge over Brookhaven Creek. The proposed improvements include reconstructing Main Street Bridge with a triple cell reinforced concrete box, and structurally stabilizing the banks on both sides of Brookhaven Creek.
