Construction on the Main Street Bikeway project is set to begin the week of March 18, weather and other conditions permitting.
No large scale construction is planned by the City of Broken Arrow for the bikeway. The bulk of the project consists of restriping vehicle lanes and on street parking south of Houston and adding signage and shared lane markers throughout.
Drivers may see some lane closures on Main Street, but the work should not affect access to homes and businesses.
The project should be completed by the end of May, weather permitting.
The Main Street Bikeway project is the first bikeway for Broken Arrow and is administrated by the Oklahoma Department of Transportation (ODOT) as part of the Indian Nations Council of Governments’ (INCOG) GO Plan. The $504,000 project is primarily funded through a $378,000 federal Transportation Alternatives Grant. The remaining funding is from the Parks and Recreation Department’s capital fund.
An alternate bike route north of Houston will be established along 1st Street between Fort Worth and Midway Streets so cyclists can choose to avoid heavy vehicle and pedestrian traffic through the Rose District.
As part of the regional GO Plan, the Main Street Bikeway will eventually connect to the popular Liberty Parkway Trail, a nine mile trail that follows the Creek Turnpike in south Broken Arrow. The City of Broken Arrow is currently designing Phase I of the new Broken Arrow Creek Trail. This trail begins at the Elm Place and Liberty Parkway trailhead and travels north for approximately 2.5 miles on S. Ash Avenue and S. First Place.
