Adjustment in available traffic lanes on Second & Bryant project

As work continues on the $7.5 million improvements project at the intersection of Second Street and Bryant Avenue, a shift in the traffic patterns and lanes available will take place beginning the evening of Feb. 28.

 North-south traffic will be moved from the lanes currently available – those on the west side of Bryant Avenue that were in use while work was being done – to lanes that have been completed on the east side of Bryant Avenue and ready for public use. Work to re-stripe the lanes and adjustments to the traffic signal heads will begin the evening of Feb. 28 to accommodate the shifting of available lanes.

 As part of this adjustment, beginning the evening of Feb. 28 there will be no left turn available from southbound Bryant Avenue onto eastbound Second Street. Left turns will now be allowed from northbound Bryant onto westbound Second Street.

 Motorists are encouraged to use alternate routes as necessary, but residents are still encouraged to support the businesses in the area.

 During this project, the intersection will be widened to better accommodate regular traffic volumes in the area. After completion, each direction of two-lane traffic will be complemented with dual left-turn lanes and a right-turn lane.

 This contractor for the project Crossland Heavy Contractors. The total cost is $7,478,800 with the City of Edmond providing 100 percent of the funding.
