Residents will have an opportunity Monday to see how a street rehabilitation project on East 15th Street will impact them as well as local drivers.

The City of Tulsa will hold a meeting at 6 p.m. for those who live near 15th Street and South Lewis. 

Monday's meeting is at Christ the King Catholic Church in Fletcher Hall at 1520 South Rockford Avenue.

The City of Tulsa says the project is being funded by the 2014 Penny Sales Tax. 

Another meeting will be held just before construction begins, to introduce the contractor and explain the work schedule.

An ongoing rehabilitation project of South Lewis has moved to the same intersection.

Traffic on South Lewis is limited to one lane in each direction, and “No Left Turn” signs have been posted on all legs of the intersection.

Officials say the rehabilitation project is expected to be finished at the end of the year.  It will include moving waterlines as well as pavement and sidewalk replacement.  It also includes rebuilding the entire South Lewis and East 15th Street intersection.

The City of Tulsa has contracted with Tri-Star Construction for this $4,777,787 project funded by the 2008 Third Penny Sales Tax (Fix Our Streets).
