The Oklahoma Department of Transportation (ODOT) awarded several projects during their regular meeting Monday.
Among the $118 million in projects awarded was a project to rehabilitate bridges, including painting and joint seal and repair, on U.S. Highway 64, near the state line into Fort Smith.
The $5,775,321.71 contract was awarded to Haskell Lemon Construction of Oklahoma City. ODOT set the contract time at 420 days.
Part of the project is to rehabilitate the bridge near the stockyards, and it is expected that traffic will be slowed and narrowed as the rehab takes place.
The bridge directly west of that bridge is to be painted, which is already taking place.
