NORMAN — Interstate lanes closing near Indian Hills Road

Beginning today, Wildcat Construction will temporarily close north and southbound lanes of Interstate 35 between 7 p.m. and 6 a.m. the next day. The lane closures will vary and may consist of multiple lanes. The work should be completed by Saturday.

Barkley Street closure

On Wednesday morning, Barkley Street — from Boyd to Brooks — will be limited to local traffic only to allow for contract sewer repairs.

Local access only will be allowed to adjacent properties for residents. Drivers are advised to select alternate routing. Signs will be placed by Midstate Traffic Control to assist the motoring public.

Weather permitting, work should be completed and Barkley Street reopened by Thursday.
