Main and Lahoma street closures between Flood and Park continue

Main Street, for the two block segment located between Park and Flood, will continue to be partially closed for the installation of a new 16-inch water transmission line in the eastbound lanes of Main Street. One lane of traffic in each direction will remain open by shifting both east and westbound traffic to the two northern-most lanes. Although some entrances may be temporarily closed, at least one entrance to the shopping areas will remain open at all times.

Lahoma south of Main will also be closed while the new waterline is installed under Imhoff Creek. Suggested detour routes for Lahoma are University to the east or Flood to the west. Lahoma is expected to reopen with a temporary road surface by Thursday.
In addition, Flood Avenue south of Main is expected to be closed beginning June 5 for installation of the new waterline across Flood; the closure is expected to continue through at least June 12. Suggested detour routes for Flood would be University to the east or Berry to the west. 
Once the waterline is placed into operation, the City of Norman street department will begin installing the concrete pavement. Paving operations are anticipated to begin on or near June 7 and continue for several weeks. Signs will be in place to assist motorists in detouring around the work. Timing of construction activities may vary dependent upon weather and differing site conditions.
Questions concerning the waterline installation may be directed to Mark Daniels, City of Norman utilities engineer, at 366-5377; or Masoud Pajoh, City of Norman capital projects engineer, at 366-5319. 
Contractors for the project are Central Contracting Services for waterline work and A-Tech for the paving work.

History:
The Main Street waterline project between Berry Road and James Garner Avenue will enhance water pressure and firefighting capabilities and replace the aging water infrastructure prior to the ongoing reconstruction of Main Street paving and the future construction of the Main Street Streetscape Project later this summer.  The streetscape project will include landscaping, sidewalks, street furniture, ADA ramps, decorative lighting, cobblestone paving band and asphalt pavement rehabilitation between Park and James Garner.  When completed, the streetscape improvements will closely match the Main Street segment between Jones Avenue and Porter Avenue.
