Thomas Drive Realignment & Widening Work Expands to the North

Thomas Drive Realignment

Beginning Tuesday, November 13th, the Thomas Drive Realignment and Widening project will begin its next phase between Oregon Trail and the new Edmond North High School parking lot.  This phase is expected through to last the end of December with cooperative weather.

During this phase of work, access to John Ross Elementary will always be available during school days, but could be narrowed to one lane with the use of flaggers.  Thru traffic to Danforth Road from the north will continue to be unavailable for motorists.  However, the Edmond North High School parking lots will be accessible from the south on the newly reconstructed section of Thomas Drive.

A breakdown of the upcoming work is as follows (dependent on cooperative weather):

November 13-16 – Milling of the old roadway will take place.  Motorists will still be able to drive on the milled roadway.

November 19-21 – The roadway will be fully closed to traffic while contractors install storm sewer crossings and connections.  This full closure coincides with the school closure for Thanksgiving.

November 26-December 7 – Contractors will modify the subgrade and remove significant amounts of dirt.  During this time, it is possible the roadway will be reduced to one lane with the use of flaggers.

December 10-28 – New curb and gutter and paving will be installed.

SAC Services Inc. is the contractor for the realignment and widening project at a total cost of $2,260,531.35 from the 2000 Capital Improvement Sales Tax.
