Part of Peoria will be closed for sewer work beginning tomorrow.
Starting just after 9am South Peoria Avenue will be closed just north of East 61st Street for approximately two weeks during installation of a 48-inch sanitary sewer.
Motorists can use the marked detours to avoid the area:
Southbound traffic on Peoria will turn west on 60th Street to Madison Avenue, and then turn south on Madison Avenue back to 61st Street. Then turn left or back east on 61st Street to get back to Peoria. Then motorists can either go south on Peoria or east on 61st Street.
Northbound traffic on Peoria will have to turn east on 61st Street and then north on Rockford Avenue, to 60th Street, then turn left or west on 60th Street to get back to Peoria.
This sanitary sewer work is part of an ongoing project to widen 61st Street between Riverside Parkway and Peoria Avenue, as well as the intersection of 61st Street and Peoria Avenue.
The City of Tulsa has contracted with Becco Contractors Inc. for this $11 million project funded by the 2006 Third Penny Sales Tax. Completion is scheduled for March 2013.
