On Wednesday, October 27, the City of Guymon will be closing off Memory Lane from Highway 54 east to Hurliman Road in order to replace and repair the concrete and asphalt in that area. Lloyd Boles, Streets Director for the City of Guymon has been busy notifying businesses in that area about the project. Boles and his crew will be setting out road blocks and detour signs in the area before Behne Construction starts the project on Wednesday.
Local traffic that needs to go east on Memory Lane will be rerouted to Jerry Street northeast of Memory Lane on Highway 54 to Patricia Drive and then back south to Memory Lane to go east. Hurliman will remain open off Highway 54 and Hwy 3 for regular traffic, only local traffic from residents living in that area or funeral processions will be allowed down Memory Lane in between Patricia and Hurliman. Access to the truck stop, restaurant and motel will only be open from the Highway 54 entrances.
“We realize this will be an inconvenience for the customers of these businesses and homeowners east of this project area. However, this intersection east and onto Memory Lane is getting very rough due to high traffic and in need of replacement and repair in order to make it easier on customers and residents utilizing it,” said Ivan Clark, Public Works Director for the City.
According to Behne Construction, the project is estimated to take approximately a week to complete. For more information call the City of Guymon at 338-0137.
