Weather permitting, Berry Road between Lindsey Street and Avondale Drive will be temporarily closed to traffic to perform underground utility construction at 6 a.m. Monday, July 27, and reopened to traffic by 5 p.m. Tuesday, August 4, 2015. Central Contracting Services, under contract with the Norman Utilities Authority and the University of Oklahoma, is currently installing a 24-inch and a 16-inch waterline along Lindsey Street from Chautauqua Avenue to Berry Road, then north on Berry Road to Avondale. During this temporary road closure on Berry Road, both Lindsey Street and Avondale Drive will be open to traffic.

Warning and detour signs will be placed to assist the motoring public. Drivers are urged to use alternate routes via Wylie Road to Boyd Street to Berry Road. Weather permitting; the Lindsey Street Waterline Improvements should be complete by September 2015.
