All lanes of 36th Ave. NW close at Robinson St. Friday night, through weekend

All lanes of 36th Avenue NW will be closed to through traffic from Robinson Street south to Havenbrook and Robinson St. will be narrowed to one lane in each direction at 36th Avenue NW from 9 p.m. Friday, December 6 through 7 a.m. Monday, December 9. The closure is associated with an ongoing waterline replacement project along Robinson St. 
Warning signs and detour signs will be in place to direct and assist the traveling public. Drivers are urged to locate an alternate route such as Brookhaven Boulevard, Havenbrook St. and Rambling Oaks Drive. 
The Norman Utilities Authority (NUA) is in the process of replacing approximately six miles of large diameter water line along Robinson Street. This 45-year-old water line is deteriorating, and recent pipe failures have occurred, causing major traffic disruptions and unbudgeted repair costs. This waterline delivers water from the Water Treatment Plant (WTP) in east Norman to the Brookhaven Storage Tower and customers in west Norman. 
Central Contracting Services has installed approximately 1,000 feet of new 30-inch waterline along Robinson Street between Rambling Oaks and 36th Avenue NW; another 3,000 feet of waterline remains to be installed to the Brookhaven Water Storage Tower located just west of Brookdale Drive. Extensive closures of portions of Robinson Street will be required for the next several months while the work is completed.
Local access to adjacent properties will be maintained for the duration of the project. Streets, driveways, and other business entrances may be temporarily closed; however, the contractor will keep at least one means of access for all commercial entities during their business hours. Driveways will be made passable by filling the trench with gravel until permanent repairs can be completed.
The Phase II Robinson Waterline Replacement is a $2.85 million utility/roadway replacement project and is anticipated to be completed in spring 2020. Questions or comments may be directed to Mark Daniels, Utilities Engineer, at 405.366.5377 or mark.daniels@normanok.gov.
