    ''Kelly, north of Covell to south of Coffee Creek
    The Kelly Avenue parkway road construction project will begin Wednesday, July 17, 2013. The Kelly Avenue widening will start approximately 1000 feet north of Covell and will continue north to a point 350 feet south of Coffee Creek. The street will be widened to provide a four-lane divided roadway with left turns at all public streets. There will be a new traffic signal light at Kelly and Prairie Village Drive which will also serve as an additional access point into Mitch Park, Mathis Skate Park, and Cheyenne Middle School. The project also includes street lighting and landscaping. There will be 5 foot wide sidewalks on both sides of Kelly.

    The first phase of the project is to construct a new bridge just south of Coffee Creek adjacent to the Coffee Creek Golf Course. This will require the closing of Kelly Avenue to through traffic. Local traffic will have access to Hunters Pointe, Hunters Creek, Prairie Village and Coffee Creek Additions from the south end of the project via Covell, while the Villas at Hunters Creek Addition and the Coffee Creek Golf Course will have access from the north end of the project via Coffee Creek. It is anticipated that phase one will require 125 days to complete at which time the road will re-open to through traffic while work on the rest of Kelly will proceed. Formal detour route signs will be posted.

    The Oklahoma Department on Transportation (ODOT) awarded the project to Duit Construction Company of Edmond in the amount of $5,934,304. Project funding is 80% federal funds and 20% city funds. ODOT will administer and inspect the project. Edmond will have personnel available on the job site as necessary. The total project duration is 250 calendar days.

    Periodic lane closures may be necessary for some of the construction activity. Motorists are advised to use extreme caution and obey traffic signs and flagmen while traveling through the work zone as workers and equipment will be present''

    I really wish Edmond would tackle more than one road project at a time. When I say road project, I mean a REAL one. It would be nice to see them just widen the entire stretch of Covell and get it done with. They don't need to do every listed project at once, but it would be awesome if they would do about 3-4 at a time.

    As far as everything goes in post #7, if Edmond is going to be the first real metro suburb to go bicycle friendly, I'd advise them to go ahead and make these new streets wide enough to accommodate a painted lane for bicycle traffic. Those "Three Feet, It's the Law" signs don't do crap for cyclists...

    I agree, and the new Covell has more than enough room to add a bike lane lane and still keep ROW for to widen it to 6 lanes years and years down the road.

    While PluPan created this thread for actual planned or currently under construction road construction, I figured this would be a good spot to put this without creating a new thread. My thought is, how can we ease traffic at 33rd & Broadway? I'm not the best artist, so I visualize using MS Pain-t. Anybody think Edmond would ever consider doing a Single Point subUrban Interchange? I think this location would be perfect for such an item.

    Note the single white non passing line for thru cars. Not enough room to show on my rendering, but a 500 ft. additional right turn lane could be added for both northbound and southbound traffic and the center lane can be a turn either way or go straight lane, kinda like Meridian northbound at NW Expressway. Anyway, this is the most horrendous intersection in Edmond at anytime of the day, albeit overnight hours. The center median landscaping would stay as is north of where Broadway straightens out to a compass north/south alignment.

    I will post a rendering of a sort later of how I think this intersection should be. In the meantime; here is an update from the word of Danforth railroad crossing:

    Danforth Railroad Crossing Remains Closed

    Burlington Northern Santa Fe (BNSF) Railroad Company is continuing work on the replacement of the Danforth railroad crossing through Wednesday. Original estimates were that the work would last through Tuesday.

    Once replacement has been completed, City of Edmond crews will move in to do asphalt work that will complete the crossing repairs

    City of Edmond officials encourage motorists to find alternate routes during this time and appreciate everyone’s cooperation'
