Traffic shift coming for New Orleans Square road project


City of Broken Arrow construction division manager Timothy Robins gives an update on the New Orleans Square intersection project. 

The east/west traffic currently on the south side of the intersection will transition to the north side on Friday, Sept. 2. Left turns will still be restricted to keep the traffic moving. 

The speed limit will remain at 30 m.p.h.

The project to revamp the intersection is the latest installment of the revitalization efforts of New Orleans Square in south Broken Arrow. The work is expected to begin in early June.

The improvements include:

  • Decorative concrete intersection
  • Asphalt mill and overlay
  • Approximately 2,400 feet of 12 inch waterline
  • Approximately 2,200 feet of 5-feet wide sidewalk
  • Approximately 600 feet of 10-feet wide sidewalk
  • Landscaping and irrigation
  • Hardscaping
  • Gateways
  • Streetlighting
  • Traffic Signals

The new pavement configuration will include two through lanes in each direction along with dedicated left turn lanes at the intersection. Also, a dedicated right turn lane is included along northbound Elm Place for right turns onto eastbound New Orleans Street.
