Waverly to close at U.S. 60

Ponca City Now - December 8, 2014 9:57 am

The Oklahoma Department of Transportation has notified Ponca City that Waverly Street will be closed to southbound traffic at U.S. 60 beginning either Tuesday, Dec. 9, or Wednesday, Dec. 10.

U.S 60 is being reconstructed and widened through this area as a part of a bridge reconstruction project over Bois D’Arc Creek. Roadway work has been progressing from the bridge to the east and has now reached Waverly Street. ODOT’s contractor will close Waverly to allow the U.S. 60 reconstruction to continue eastward.

East/west traffic on U.S. 60 will be maintained on the south side of the highway on temporary pavement. Waverly will be open to the south off of U.S. 60, but north/south traffic on Waverly will be blocked for the next two weeks. North/south through traffic on Waverly should be restored by Dec. 23.

Waverly Street is the main access to Ponca City’s landfill. Residents can still access the landfill by proceeding to U.S. 60 at a point east of Waverly using either Fourth Street/Standing Bear or 14th Street. Once on westbound U.S. 60, traffic can turn south onto Waverly.

Contact Traffic Engineering Manager Mike Lane at 767-0327 for more information.
