NORMAN — Lindsey Street public meeting

A public information meeting and open house on the West Lindsey Street reconstruction project will be from 6 to 8 p.m. April 3 in the Main Conference Room at Sooner Legends Inn and Suites, 1200 24th Ave. SW.

There will be a presentation about the proposed improvements to Lindsey Street from 24th Avenue Southwest to Berry Road and expected impacts to motorists and the surrounding community. Public input is desired.

The project consists of widening that portion of Lindsey from three lanes to a divided four-lane roadway, replacing the Imhoff Creek Bridge and addressing storm water flooding. Traffic signals at 24th Avenue Southwest, McGee Drive and Berry Road will be upgraded.
