Chautauqua from Lindsey to Elmwood to close Wednesday

Chautauqua Avenue from Lindsey to Elmwood Street will close after 9 a.m. on Wednesday for installation of a new waterline. As construction allows, local traffic will have access only in the northbound direction on Chautauqua. Temporary driveway access with a gravel surface will be provided each evening. 

Motorists are encouraged to detour west along Elmwood and use Pickard to reach Lindsey. 
The project is a continuation of the joint project between the University of Oklahoma and the City of Norman Utility Authority (NUA).  The NUA is installing a new 24-inch waterline to improve water distribution to the west side of Norman, as well as improve fire protection and increase the ability to provide peak day demand.  The university is replacing their 16-inch waterline that supplies water from North Base to the main campus. The two entities are working together to install the two pipes within the same ditch, providing savings to both. 
The pipes will be installed under the southbound lane of the road, which will be replaced with a new concrete surface. The overall project will extend from Lindsey to Timberdell and is expected to be completed by August 17, if weather cooperates.
Questions can be directed to Chris Mattingly, capital projects engineer, at 217-7778.
