EDMOND — Construction of a new bridge near Chimney Hills and Coltrane roads is progressing well, City Engineer Steve Manek said.


The $4.2 million project is "pretty much on schedule,” Manek said.

The city is paying for the work with the 1996 sales tax for capital improvements and general fund reserves which includes the street and alley fund.

Work started Nov. 10 and is expected to take 200 days, said City Manager Larry Stevens.

"The dirt work should soon be completed, and work is now starting on the entrances to Chimney Hill (housing addition),” Stevens said. "Curb and gutter construction is also progressing in the area north of Chimney Hills Road, on the west side of Coltrane Road.”

Design work on the project began in July 2003.

Coltrane Road is closed to through traffic from Second to 15th streets.

Contract awarded
Elsewhere in Edmond, a $930,653 contract with All Roads Paving Inc. was awarded for improvements at Danforth and Coltrane roads.

Moving the utilities should be completed this week, Manek said. Road work is expected to begin after April 1.

Signal lights will be installed and the roadway will be widened to include a turn lane.

Work is expected to take six months. During that time, Coltrane and Danforth near the construction site will be closed.

Streets closing
In Oklahoma City, N Western Avenue from NW 150th to NW 164th streets will be closed starting Monday for the replacement of a bridge. The bridge replacement is part of a $4.5 million road-widening project funded through general obligation bonds. Work is expected to be completed by the end of July
