Broken Arrow cuts ribbon on 37th Street extension

The City of Broken Arrow will officially cut the ribbon on a new stretch of 37th Street at 2 p.m., Tuesday, Feb. 25.

The new one mile section of 37th Street (also known as 209th East Avenue) connects Omaha (51st) and Albany (61st) Streets. This was the last major section line road in the City that was not continuous. 

“This roadway has been a long time in the making,” said City Manager Michael Spurgeon. “Unfortunately, we experienced some significant delays as a result of utility relocations, but I’m very pleased to be able to finally open 37th Street up to traffic. I know many residents in this section of our great city are excited for its completion. This will be an excellent connection for the northeast section of our community.”

The $3.83 million project was funded by the voter approved 2014 general obligation bond. Construction was delayed for a significant period of time early on in the project after ONG decided to relocate a gas main outside of existing easements in the project corridor, which delayed City contractors. 

A small park is also planned in the future about midway along the new section of roadway. The park was approved as part of the 2011 and 2014 general obligation bonds.

The roadway was opened to traffic in mid-January, but Broken Arrow Police will temporarily shutdown the roadway to allow for the ribbon cutting, which takes place midway between Omaha and Albany.
