Relief should soon be on the way for drivers who use 45th Street North to reach Maize schools.

With school starting this week, the road closure has been creating some delays.

But 45th between Tyler and Maize roads is scheduled to reopen Wednesday after being closed for about a week for paving work, said Bill McKinley, city engineer for Maize.

Work involved replacing asphalt with concrete at Tyler and 45th and for about 350 feet west of the intersection, McKinley said.

As of Tuesday morning, crews still needed to paint fresh stripes on the pavement, he added.
