The City of Norman, in conjunction with the Oklahoma Department of Transportation, will hold a public meeting regarding the proposed reconstruction of a portion of West Lindsey Street from 24th Avenue SW to Berry Road. The meeting will be held Monday, March 3rd, from 6PM to 8PM in the Main Conference Room at Sooner Legends Inn and Suites, 1200 24th Avenue SW.
The proposed reconstruction includes the widening of West Lindsey Street from 24th Avenue SW to Berry Road to a divided four-lane roadway from a three-lane roadway, the replacement of the Imhoff Creek Bridge, drainage improvements to alleviate of storm water flooding issues and traffic signal upgrades where West Lindsey Street intersects with 24th Avenue SW, McGee Drive and Berry Road.
The March 3rd public meeting will include an overview of the proposed improvements, discussion of their necessity and any expected impacts upon travelers and the surrounding community. The City of Norman is hoping to gather public input to help inform the required Environmental Assessment process.
A portion of the project’s funding comes from the Association of Central Oklahoma Governments in the form of Surface Transportation Program Urbanized Area (STP-UZA) funds in the amount of $9,727,200, which is the maximum percentage – 56% – of ACOG funds any single entity in Central Oklahoma can receive in one federal fiscal year.
