Work began Monday to overlay more than six miles of Owasso streets. The $1 million project is a joint effort between the Owasso Public Works Authority and Tulsa County, according to Ana Stagg, OPW director.
Several sections of city streets will be affected by the repairs.
* Mingo between 86th Street North and 96th Street North
* West Owasso Expressway between 76th Street North and 86th Street North
* East Owasso Expressway between 76th Street North and 86th Street North
* North 145th East Avenue between 86th Street North and 96th Street North
* East 96th Street North between 129th East Avenue and 145th East Avenue.
* North 123rd East Avenue between 76th Street North and 86th Street North
The city and county are partnering on the projects with the use of dounty labor and equipment for the paving and/or resurfacing of approximately eight lane-miles (or 6,400 tons of asphalt) of roadway surface.
Residents can expect delays or closures along the streets while they are being repaired, according to J. B. Alexander, Owasso Public Works project manager.
The overlay work is scheduled to be completed by May 1.
The streets will be re stripped in May.
