The Oklahoma Department of Transportation (ODOT) recently awarded contracts for two road work projects in Sequoyah County.
State Sen. Mark Allen (R-Spiro) and State Rep. John Bennett (R-Sallisaw) announced the contracts last week.
According to ODOT, the first project will involve joint seal and repair work on U.S. Highway 64, about four miles west of the Arkansas state line near Roland.
Allen said the ODOT commission awarded the nearly $340,000 contract to B&B construction Service J.T. Inc. The Clayton company was the lowest of four bidders for the job. Once construction begins, the project is estimated to be completed within four months.
The second project will involve right-of-way clearance on U.S. Highway 59 from U.S. Highway 64 extending north in Sallisaw.
Allen said ODOT awarded the $170,000 contract to J.E. Dirt Wurx LLC. The Wagoner company was the lowest of five bidders for the job. Once construction begins, the project is estimated to be completed within six months.
