City Council OK’s amendment to Elm Street widening project
Jenks City Council on Monday finalized an amendment that will expand the proposed Elm Street widening project.
Voters will head to the polls in April 2020 to decide on some key general obligation bond projects, one of them expanding Elm Street from three lanes to five between 111th St. and 131st St. Originally, the project had Elm Street going to five lines just from 111th to 121st St.
As seen in the illustration below, Elm Street will have four driving lanes and a middle lane for turning. Portions of the road will have landscape medians as well.
If the project is approved, construction will begin in January of 2021 and is expected to be completed by late 2022.
