Sidewalk improvements under way

NORMAN — A contractor has started working on sidewalk improvements on the south side of Boyd Street, between Classen Boulevard and Barkley Street.

The new sidewalks will fill in the last gap of sidewalks along Boyd Street between the University of Oklahoma campus and 12th Avenue Southeast. The contractor will begin at the east end of the project and proceed westward.

At least one lane of Boyd Street will remain open.

The contractor will contact residents who are affected as work progresses. At that time, those residents should plan on parking on a side street or make parking arrangements with a neighbor until their specific driveway work is concluded.

A-Tech Paving will perform the work, which should be completed by July 25. The project bid of $122,800 is being funded with 80 percent federal and 20 percent city funds.

For more information, call Michael Rayburn at 217-7713.
