Lindsey Street construction continues to plague local businesses

Daniel Johnston

Narveir Singn, a manager at India Village, says “It’s very very hard to make money. Businesses next door and around us have all closed down.” The City of Norman and the Oklahoma Department of Transportation describes the project as a revamping of the Highway 9 and Lindsey Street exits in the largest single contract in the state’s history. This has left Lindsey Street littered with bulldozers, street remnants and long car lines.

India Village is a Norman favorite and prides itself in a 3.8 out of 5 star review on Yelp. While the food may be good, rent is expensive and the construction continues to hamper business. Singn has been dealing with construction woes for a year and a half now and believes his best bet is to hope an end is somewhere in sight.
