ADA, Okla. (KTEN) — Ada city staff are planning to make major changes to Stadium Drive on the city's east side.

"Currently the water line runs underneath the roadway, so any time there's a break, it causes impact to traffic,” city engineer project manager Shelly Williams said. “Plus, it's just a high-pressure line and aging infrastructure. It needs to be replaced anyway."

The project will be on Stadium Drive between Scenic Drive and Cradduck Road.

It's main purpose is for waterline relocation, but will also include improved road conditions and the extension of an existing trail near Ada high school to Scenic Drive.

A traffic study has been in the works over the last seven months and now a design is in the early stages.

As engineers work on that, there's another component that officials are considering.

"We are proposing a roundabout at Kerr Lab, Meadow Wood and Stadium,” Williams explained. “That is just a natural traffic-calming movement. It would accommodate any school bus or even any truck traffic that we would ever want. So, as you're talking about students that are going from Ada High to East Central, it is just a good place for us to look to introduce that."

The scopes of the project are popular among some commuters.

"I know we need the water work, but the biggest thing to me is the proposed roundabout,” Brent Trammell said. “That is really going to loosen up some traffic."

"I'd really like to see a sidewalk,” Nicholas Jacob explained. “It's going to connect to the university. I still think that's a really advantageous thing to have."

Ada city officials don't have a timeline for the project yet, but expect it to cost around four million dollars.
