Jenks officials expect 111th and Elwood project completion this spring
This past summer, construction crews began work on one of the most popular intersections in Jenks, 111th Street and Elwood Avenue.
The project to improve the high-traffic intersection has closed the four-way roadway since the construction commenced.
Originally, the project was scheduled to be completed by February of this year, but due to several delays, 111th Street and Elwood Avenue will hopefully be open and completed sometime this coming spring, according to Jenks City Manager Chris Shrout.
Here is a list of the improvements being made to the Jenks intersection:
-Continue working on retaining wall on northwest corner of 111th Street and Elwood Avenue
-Construct wing walls for the Coal Creek Bridge abutments
-Place diaphragms, stay in place forms and steel for Coal Creek Bridge deck
-Continue work on installation of waterline, sanitary sewer line, and storm sewer structures
-Continue with construction of aggregate base and edge drains on 111th Street west of Coal Creek Bridge
The Jenks Tribune will continue to update the 111th Street and Elwood Avenue project as it progresses.
