Construction set for two sections of Elm Street

Ponca City Now - July 5, 2016 7:45 am

Evans and Associates Construction Company has entered a contract with the City of Ponca City to reconstruct the pavement and replace the water lines on Elm Street from Highland Avenue to Summit Avenue and from Otoe Avenue to 75 feet north of Ponca Avenue.

Beginning Tuesday, July 5, work will begin on the water line replacement portion of the work on Elm Street from Highland Avenue to Summit Avenue. The water line work on this phase will take approximately two weeks to complete.

During this time the street will be open to local traffic only. Also during this time, Highland Avenue at the Elm Street intersection will be reduced to one lane of traffic for both eastbound and westbound traffic.

After the water line work is complete the pavement reconstruction work will begin. During the pavement reconstruction work, Elm Street from Highland Avenue to Summit Avenue will be closed to all traffic.

The total construction time for all the work from Highland Avenue to Summit Avenue is estimated to be 60 calendar days.

Beginning Monday, July 18, work is scheduled to begin on the water line portion of the project on Elm Street from Otoe Avenue to 75 feet north of Ponca Avenue. For the first two to three weeks during the water line work, Elm Street from Otoe Avenue to 75 feet north of Ponca Avenue will be open to local traffic only.

After the water line work is complete, the paving reconstruction work will begin, and Elm Street from Otoe Avenue to 75 feet north of Ponca Avenue will be closed to all traffic. The Ponca Avenue intersection will be closed to all traffic as well. The total construction time for the work from Otoe Avenue to 75 feet north of Ponca Avenue is estimated at 90 calendar days.

For both sections of this project, during the pavement reconstruction phase, vehicles will not be permitted in the work area, and residents will need to find alternate parking. Signing and barricades will be in place informing motorists of the construction.

Representatives of Evans and Associates Construction Company are in the process of distributing informational letters to all of the residences directly affected by this construction. Any questions regarding this project may be directed to Evans and Associates Construction Company at 765-6693 or to the City Engineering department at 767-0326.
