Virtual public meeting for Porter Avenue intersection project planned July 16

The City of Norman is hosting a virtual public meeting to provide updates and information on upcoming transportation improvements to the intersection of Porter Avenue and Acres Street.

The online meeting will be held Thursday, July 16 at 6 p.m. on the City’s YouTube channel, Cox channel 20 and AT&T Uverse channel 99. Following the presentation, will be a public question and answer time. Residents can submit questions at any time before or during the presentation by emailing [email protected]

In addition to intersection upgrades, the upcoming project includes streetscape improvements along Porter Avenue from Robinson to Alameda Street. The improvements would add six-foot and eight-foot decorative sidewalks, Americans with Disabilities Act compliant wheelchair ramps, new streetlights, pedestrian benches, trash cans and covered bus shelters.

These projects are funded through the City’s 2019 Transportation Bond Program, which was approved by Norman Voters on April 2, 2019. The estimated $4.7 million project is anticipated to go to bid in Fall 2020. For more information about the Porter Corridor Projects, view this flyer.

The City of Norman strives to accommodate the needs of all residents, including those who may be disabled.  If you would like to attend this meeting but find it difficult because of a disability, architectural barrier, or another special need, please contact Mr. Paul D’Andrea at (405) 366-5319, by email at [email protected].
