Work on water line project will affect traffic around the UCO area

Work on portions of the Danforth Water Line project will impact traffic around the University of Central Oklahoma campus area.

Beginning June 8, traffic on Chowning Avenue will be reduced to one lane in each direction, beginning from just north of University Drive to just south of Thatcher Street. During this project, there will be no left turn access onto Thatcher or Wayne streets from southbound Chowning.

Work on trenching on this section of Chowning is expected to take 10 days, with cooperative weather. 

Also, during this project, eastbound Wayne Street, between Chowning and Blackwelder avenues, will be closed while work is completed, and southbound Blackwelder Avenue, between Wayne and Ayers streets, will be closed. Trenching work will be completed in intermittent phases, to mitigate the impact to traffic flow and accommodate access to residences in the area.

Work on that phase of the project is expected to finish in early August, with cooperative weather.

Motorists are asked to note the impacts and adjust their routes and travel schedule accordingly.

The $9.2 million Danforth Water Line project will upsize the water line running along Danforth Road from the existing Danforth Water tower and soccer Fields to the UCO area. Once complete the old College Water tower will be demolished.
