A City of Tulsa road project is complete, but the contractor is making small repairs on sections that didn’t pass the final inspection.

The project was a major rehabilitation of Harvard Avenue from 51st to 61st Street South, involving replacing all utilities under the road, including new drain lines, a new road surface and sidewalks.

The city conducted the final inspection last week and according to City spokesperson Lara Weber, a cracked concrete panel needed to be replaced and an intersection needs repairs on the west side at 58th and Harvard. 

The concrete has already been repoured and the intersection repair is beginning.  Drivers can expect short term lane closures in the south bound lanes during the work.

Crossland Construction has workers in the area making repairs and finishing other final steps on the project.

Work on the project began in March 2015.
