Tulsa, OK – East 56th Street North just west of North Peoria Avenue will be closed for four to eight hours on Saturday, Jan. 16, during installation of a storm sewer crossing the roadway. This is part of an ongoing street rehabilitation project on North Peoria Avenue between 36th Street North and 56th Street North.
Most work on the project has been completed, except near the intersection of 56th Street North and Peoria Avenue. During the remaining construction, one northbound lane and one southbound lane on Peoria Avenue will remain open, and two lanes will be closed.
The City of Tulsa has contracted with Paragon Contractors LLC for this $3.6 million project funded by the 2005 Bond Issue. It includes replacing waterlines, removing (milling) the top road surface and applying a new layer of asphalt on North Peoria Avenue between East 36th Street North and East 56th Street North.
Work at the intersections of North Peoria Avenue with 46th Street North and 56th Street North also includes better storm drainage, new traffic signals, turn radius improvements, sidewalk repairs and installation of wheelchair ramps. The project is scheduled for completion in May 2010.
