All lanes of traffic on West Lindsey Street to be opened by end of the day Friday

Traffic control devices on West Lindsey Street will be removed during the day Friday and all lanes will be opened to traffic by the end of the day. The intersections of 24th Avenue SW, McGee Drive, Wiley Road, and Berry Road on West Lindsey Street will be included. 

Drivers should expect short-term single lane closures as the final work is completed on the road project. The lane closures are expected to be brief with minimal impact to motorists.

Questions may be directed to Chris Serrano, construction manager for the City of Norman’s public works department at 366-5265.

A future phase of work on West Lindsey Street includes landscape plantings, which will be performed in the spring.

HISTORY OF THE PROJECT – LINDSEY STREET, 24th AVENUE SW TO BERRY ROAD 

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.
