    Additional Boulevard Mill and Overlay to begin next Monday

    Work to resurface a one and a half mile section of Boulevard Road is slated to begin Monday, October 6th. The project is expected to take approximately three weeks with cooperative weather.

    The area of Boulevard Road to be resurfaced is from 15th Street to the south city limits (just south of Smiling Hill Boulevard). The south bound lanes will be closed with traffic being rerouted to one lane each direction in the north bound lanes. Once the south bound lanes have been completed, work will begin on the north bound lanes with traffic diverted to the south bound lanes. Motorists should expect delays and are encouraged to find an alternate route if possible.

    This resurfacing is part of the scheduled 2014-15 Mill & Overlay projects for the City of Edmond. Atlas Paving is the contractor for these projects with a total cost of $3,977,174.

    "9th Street & University Drive Closed for Repairs

    Beginning Thursday morning and running through the weekend, the intersection of 9th Street & University Drive will be closed to fix a problem with a major drainage pipe. Motorists will need to find an alternate route during the day, but the intersection will reopen to one way traffic in the evenings.

    Work is being done at this time to coincide with Fall Break and minimize the impact on school traffic."

    33rd and Broadway

    Work at busy intersection

    Utility relocations for the improvements at 33rd Street and Broadway are expected to be complete in the next 45 days, City Manager Larry Stevens said. The project will include additional westbound to southbound left turn lanes, dual southbound to eastbound left turn lanes, and single westbound and eastbound right turn lanes. A median will be installed on 33rd Street east of Broadway and this area will be widened as well. The Oklahoma Department of Transportation hopes to bid the actual road construction in March of next year. The estimated cost is $6 million with federal funding providing 51 percent of the cost and the city paying 49 percent from the 2000 capital improvements sales tax.

    Covell Parkway update

    The original design contract in the amount of $2,219,000 was approved by City Council on April 9, 2007. Several issues have arisen that facilitate need for a design amendment for the Covell Parkway.

    First, during the City Council Budget Hearings it was requested that an interim solution be developed for the intersections of Covell and Bryant and Santa Fe and Covell. The interim solution will be to widen the intersection to provide for left-turn lanes in all directions. The fee for Covell and Bryant is $79,400 and for Covell and Santa Fe is $100,700. With the opening of the new aquatic center and continued growth these intersections are experiencing severe congestion.

    The second issue is the recent purchase of land by the Edmond Public Schools at the southeast corner of Air Depot and Covell. In order to prepare for the eventual construction of a fourth high school, the section of Covell one-half mile east of Air Depot and Air Depot one-half mile south of Covell need to be designed. The fee for this service is $183,500.

    The third issue is updating and expanding the Environmental Assessment to cover the new project extents to ensure this requirement is met to utilize federal matching funds for the construction. This fee is $30,000.

    The last issue is modifying the plans for the area from Fairfax Boulevard to I-35. Numerous design changes have been and will be required due to the development occurring along the corridor. Changes will also be made to the design to eliminate impacts to adjoining property thereby eliminating any additional right-of-way, thereby expediting the project review by the Oklahoma Department of Transportation (ODOT) and saving hundreds of thousands of dollars in right-of-way costs. A traffic signal will also be designed at Fairfax Boulevard that lines up with a street for a proposed development on the south side of Covell. The fee for these services is $145,000.

    From The Sun

    Drivers on Kelly just north of 33rd Street experienced traffic reduced to one lane in each direction on Monday.

    A private contractor began the construction of a curbed median in conjunction with the construction of the new OnCue Express at that location, said Casey Moore, city spokesman. The work on Kelly is designed to help control traffic movements in and out of On Cue, he added.


    “They will be adding a northbound left turn lane into the driveway at the north end of On Cue. The median will allow traffic exiting onto Kelly from the farthest south drive to only make a right turn to go south on Kelly,” Moore said.

    Cimarron is the contractor doing the work for On Cue at a cost of $53,373. Construction time for the project is anticipated to last two weeks, depending on weather conditions, Moore said.

    Is it really a "big issue" or is it just the biggest "issue" that people can gripe about? People that visit from other cities just laugh when they hear this. Have you heard comments like, "So, from about 5:00 to 5:30, you might have to wait through two traffic light cycles before you make your turn? Oh... you poor thing!" Our city is roughly 7 X 13 miles. Most time you can get through it in 15 mins. North and South, 30 mins. East to West. Is it really a "big issue"?
