J.M. Davis project prompts road closure

3 phases to take up to 145 days

CLAREMORE —

A portion of a busy Claremore street will close Tuesday for a widening project.
The City of Claremore will start the first phase of the J.M. Davis Boulevard widening project, resulting in three road closures through the summer.
The first phase consists of closing J.M. Davis Boulevard from the Lynn Riggs intersection to Archer Street, on the west side of the railroad tracks to just north of QuikTrip’s property line.
Phase two is expected to begin 30 days later and will require a closure on the north side of QuikTrip to First Street. The third phase will also begin 30 days after the completion of phase two.
It will require a closure from the south side of First Street to Will Rogers Boulevard and the alley that exists between Will Rogers Boulevard and Fourth Street.
The crews will be milling the roadways, replacing storm structures and overlaying asphalt.
The first phase will consist of the most comprehensive construction, including the addition of widening the boxes at Cat Creek and redesigning islands at the Archer Street intersection.
During the end of the third phase construction crews will be closing most of J.M. Davis as they begin the overlay of asphalt.
Contech Inc. is the contractor for the 100-day construction project and substantial completion is expected between Aug.  11 and 21. The contract provides for a maximum of 145 days for construction.
The contractor will do everything possible to allow traffic to local merchants when permitted, according to city officials.
Due to safety issues, there will be times when no traffic will be allowed during the different phases of construction, according to Art Andrews, city development services supervisor.
Customer traffic will need to access merchants through the alleys and side streets during these different phases, Andrews added.
For more information, contact the City of Claremore at (918) 341-2066.
