Upcoming lane closures for resurfacing Thursday, Sept. 22nd, to complete the resurfacing project.

Sep 14, 2016

 

Tulsa County notified the City they will return on Thursday, September 22, to complete the resurfacing project on 121st Street from Elm to 131st Street and Harvard and on South Elwood from Polecat Creek to Main Street.

This final phase will be the application of a black polymer sealer sprayed over the current rock surface. The sealer will encapsulate the rock.  Once it has dried it will be similar in finish to asphalt. One lane will be blocked off to traffic as the sealer coat is applied. The sealer will require approximately 1 hour to dry before traffic is allowed to drive on the new surface.

For subdivisions with only one point of entry and exit onto 121st Street, such as Skyline, Oak Hill, Aberdeen Lakes, Vintage Oaks & Featherstone, a special application of black sand will be applied to the sealer which will require 15 minutes of drying time and provide expedited access to the subdivisions. We request residents in subdivisions with multiple access points to avoid 121st Street during this process. 

Tulsa County will start at one end of the project and apply one lane all the way to the other end of the project and then repeat on the other lane. There will be one lane open at all times with flaggers present at each end of the work zone.

Expect delays and plan alternate routes through your subdivisions to avoid the blocked entrances while this process is taking place. 

Thank you for your patience while this work is being completed.
