There will be some new construction on Covell starting on May 18th.

Here’s the press release from the City of Edmond

Covell Widening Project Begins on Monday, May 18

On Monday, May 18th, work to widen Covell Road between Coltrane Road and Sooner Road will begin.  This project is expected to take 260 days to complete with cooperative weather.

The specific area of Covell Road being widened begins at Covell Lane and progresses east to Fairfax Boulevard.  The roadway will be widened to four lanes throughout this section, and a traffic signal will be installed at Griffin Boulevard.

Through most of the five-phase project, one lane of traffic will be available to motorists in each direction.  However, during Phase II of work, a full closure of Covell Road will be required between Griffin Boulevard and Lamond Hill Avenue.  Local traffic will be able to access their property from the appropriate side, but thru traffic will not be allowed to pass during this time.  Further notice will be sent out before Phase II and the closure begin.

Crossland Heavy Construction is the contractor for the widening project at a total cost of $9,636,281.78.
