Toys for tots road closures


From Wednesday, Dec. 18 through Saturday, Dec. 21, the U.S. Marine Corps' Toys for Tots event will be held at the Army Reserve Center, 26401 E. 101st St. S. in Broken Arrow. As expected, traffic will be heavy which may cause some motorist delay. The Coweta Police Department, Broken Arrow Police, and Wagoner County Sheriff's Office will be directing traffic to a specific route to ensure the highway remains open and uncongested.
The U.S. Marines are working to get an electric highway sign posted at the intersection of Highway 51 and 257th E. Ave. directing all Toys for Tots traffic to use Florence Road (111th Street) next to Walmart, then proceed to 273rd Street, turning left. Traffic will continue northbound on 273rd E. Ave. until they arrive at the Reserve Center gate entrance.  Once these families receive their gifts, they will then exit through the Reserve Center gate and turn right onto 101st Street, heading northbound towards 257th E. Ave. Outbound traffic will continue through the intersection at 101st St. and 257th and exit onto SH-51.
If you move or go around a barrier you could be issued a citation. Traffic barricades at the following intersections:
• SH-51 and 101st St.
• SH-51 and 257th E. Ave.
• SH-51 and E. 104th St. S.
