  1. What does "Pre-Construction" mean?
    Pre-Construction is a term used to identify the workload prior to active roadwork. This may include draft and design work, town hall presentations, bids, etc. Pre-Construction signifies that the construction project is about to begin.

  2. Can I still reach local businesses during construction?
    While road or lane closures may be daunting, the City of Tulsa is careful to ensure business access is still available for all businesses that may be impacted by nearby projects. Keep an eye out for the blue "Business Access" signs along construction routes to find the easiest way to get to your favorite local businesses.

  3. How do I follow up with questions about a project?
    You can bookmark this page to keep up-to-date with the latest information on these projects. You can also email info@tulsacouncil.org for additional questions or comments.

  4. Why are there so many projects in one area at the same time?
    There are a number of factors that make multiple projects in the same vicinity efficient and cost-saving. Some of these factors are based on utility needs, coordination with other entities (utility companies, state/county officials, etc.) or budgetary.
