REQUESTERS PROPOSED ACTION: The City of Sand Springs, Oklahoma, proposes to construct a roadway project of the Tulsa – West Tulsa Local Flood Protection Project Levee A.

The proposed alteration of Levee A would include the placement of fill on both the wet and dry sides of the levee for the construction of a new roadway. Associated with the roadway project a new waterline is proposed to be installed on the south and east sides of the proposed roadway for its entire length. The roadway paving section over the levee will not include granular subgrade material. Waterline trenches will be backfilled and compacted with appropriate soils for the full extent of the trenching.
