City of Warr Acres Street Reconstruction Projects
The Warr Acres City Council, city staff, and citizens wanted the intersection of 50th and MacArthur Blvd to be one of the best-looking streetscapes in the metro area, and SRB teamed up with the Oklahoma Department of Transportation (ODOT), Traffic Consultant, Inc., and CLS & Associates to bring their vision to life. The Warr Acres Streetscape won the American Concrete Paving Association Oklahoma Chapter Gold Award for excellence in concrete paving. SRB solicited input from stakeholders and the community to ensure the needs and desires of citizens were met and community recognition was built into design. We provided utility coordination and relocation corridor identification to remove all overhead utilities, as that aspect was important to stakeholders. This project included intersection modifications such as traffic signals and lighting; graphic design; landscape architecture; and roadway design. SRB worked alongside ODOT during construction of the project to ensure roadway details and amenities were followed and preserved.

City of OKC Better Streets, Safer City Sales Tax Initiative Street Enhancement Projects
In 2017, Oklahoma City voters approved two sales tax initiatives known as the Better Streets, Safer City projects, which is a 10-year $967 million bond package that invests in streets, police and fire facilities, parks, and other basic needs. A temporary, 27-month continuation of the expired MAPS 3 penny sales tax generated an estimated $240 million for street resurfacing, streetscapes, trails, sidewalks, and bicycle infrastructure. SRB oversees construction of a large number of unique roadway resurfacing projects to ensure that the quality and functionality of each project meets the City of OKC’s goal to build a better future with strong transportation infrastructure and enhance the experience of OKC citizens who walk and use cars and bicycles to navigate through our city. Our team provides construction administration; construction inspection; and conflict resolution making public safety, work zone safety, and accessibility a primary component of each project.
