Work on water line project will affect traffic around the UCO/Northern Hills Elementary area

Work on a portion of the Danforth Water Line project will impact traffic around the University of Central Oklahoma/Northern Hills Elementary campus areas. Beginning Sept. 19, the intersection of Blackwelder Avenue and Ayers Street will be closed to most traffic.

Arrangements have been made to allow westbound Ayers to travel north on Blackwelder to allow access to Northern Hills Elementary School. This will be the only traffic allowed.

4M Trenching will begin work to tie in the new 24-inch Danforth Water Line to the existing water tower located at Ayers and Bauman Avenue along with upgrading the water pipes under the intersection.

Work on this phase of the project is expected to take approximately two weeks to install, test, and connect all the pipes plus replace the paving, with cooperative weather.

Motorists are asked to note the impacts and adjust their routes and travel schedule accordingly. Portable message boards are posted to advise motorists.

The $9.2 million Danforth Water Line project will increase the size of the water line running along Danforth Road from the existing Danforth Water tower and soccer fields to the UCO area.
