Broken Arrow's downtown streetscape construction project is closer to completion.

Another portion of Main Street was closed over the weekend, but it's now back open.

For the past several months, walking and driving through downtown Broken Arrow has been like an obstacle course with different roads and sidewalks closing at different times, but it's all to make downtown a safer place.

The block between College and Broadway was closed over the weekend while contractors installed underground electrical utilities and stormwater drainage pipes.The road reopened just before 6:30 a.m. Monday.

The goal of the $3.7 million project is to widen the sidewalks on Main Street to make the area more pedestrian friendly and get everything up-to-date to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act.

FOX23 spoke on the phone with Sgt. Todd Geiger, of the Broken Arrow Police Department; who said he isn't aware at this point of any closures for this weekend.

BAPD typically receives that information from city engineers later in the week.

Construction started on June 10 and most of it is supposed to wrap up in mid-October,
