TULSA, Okla. — It will be a little more hectic if you’re in the Cherry Street District as the city begins work on the new street rehabilitation project Monday.

You’ll definitely want to have a little bit of patience as they work to give this area a much needed upgrade.

They plan to start with taking out the side parking, but will still allow drivers to travel in both directions.

In September, work began on the $5.7 million project funded through the 2014 Improve Our Tulsa sales tax.

It includes replacing a 6 inch waterline, sidewalk repairs, and storm drain improvements.

The project also covers improvements to the road on Cherry Street between South Peoria Avenue and South Utica Avenue.

“There’s going to be a hindrance during the construction time frame," said Field Engineering Manger Ryan McKaskle. "What we’re hoping to do is get in and get out as quickly as possible to open it back up so that businesses can flourish.”

With the busy area expanding with even more businesses on the way, they’re also going to be restriping six of the crosswalks .

Even with all of the work going on, you will still be able to access all of the businesses and use the sidewalks.
