Building a better Oklahoma...

Sidewalking: 23rd & May

Rudy Construction Company completed sidewalk construction along 23rd & May on both sides of May headed north towards 27th street and beyond. The project included new sidewalks, landscaping, new trees, and other beautification efforts.

This area is home to historic Taft Middle School and Taft Stadium, which is the playing field for many Oklahoma athletics, including Oklahoma City Energy FC, Oklahoma City’s professional men’s soccer team. Across the street is Hudson Performance Hall, where many local and national acts perform, and Northwest Classen High School.

Locals know this area as a historic location that has seen many renovations over the years. The recent beautification project with Rudy helps prepare it for the thousands of students, athletes, families, and professionals who use this area every day. The sidewalks provide pedestrian access, additional safety, and a more beautiful section of Oklahoma City.

Project 180: 5th & Harvey

Rudy Construction Company performed streetscape renovations alongside the intersection of 5th & Harvey in Oklahoma City. As a part of Project 180, Rudy constructed new pavement, curb and gutter, new sidewalks, trees, planters, decorative grates and brick pavers.

This section of roadway and walkway was completed during phase one of Project 180 and touches the Oklahoma City National Memorial & Museum, an adjoining post office, and the statue entitled “And Jesus Wept,” which is listed on the national Museum Without Walls registry.

According to the National Parks Service, more than 350,000 people visit this area each year. Rudy Construction Company is proud to work on this area which is held in high regard to so many locally and nationally.


Improving a School Zone on Wilshire

As Oklahoma students return to school this week, parents and commuters will notice transportation improvements around Wiley Post Elementary. Rudy Construction Company completed last year the reconstruction of W Britton Road between Rockwell Avenue and Macarthur Boulevard.

Originally a two-lane road, the section of Britton Road has grown to host neighborhoods, apartments, businesses, and one school. As of construction completion, the area now has a road to meet growing community and transportation needs.

Our work included removal and replacement of the original road, new concrete paving, sidewalks, guttering, and modernized, ADA-accessible crosswalks. Today, commuters enjoy two car lanes, two bike lanes, and a dedicated center turn lane.

This section of Wilshire also connects to the west entrance of Lake Hefner, extending the citywide bike path which plans to one day connect the whole city with bike trail access.

We take pride in improving quality of life for our fellow Oklahoma City residents. This is one of many infrastructure improvements that can be enjoyed by all.
