Tulsa County, the City of Tulsa and Saint Francis recently broke ground on the Yale Avenue widening project on Jan. 10.
The project will widen Yale Avenue from 61st Street to 71st Street from four lanes to six lanes. The project cost is estimated at $3.5 million and will be split 50/50 between the City of Tulsa and Tulsa County. City funds have been used for engineering and materials; county funds will go toward manpower and equipment. The Tulsa County Highway Construction Division will perform the road construction.
The completion date is projected as July 2012.
