The Oklahoma Department of Transportation (ODOT) announced Friday that the rehabilitation of five bridges along the U.S. Highway 64 corridor just west of the Arkansas River near Moffett has begun.
ODOT asked drivers to be alert to workers and equipment near the roadway on US 64 as work begins on the project to rehabilitate the bridges. Future lane closures will be announced as they are scheduled.
The first portion of work will address areas underneath the east and westbound US-64 bridges over Grand Avenue, just west of the Arkansas River. Other bridges included in this project are three overflow structures on westbound US-64 in this area. Work is expected to complete in spring 2019.
The Oklahoma Transportation Commission awarded the nearly $6 million contract for this project to Haskell Lemon Construction Co. of Oklahoma City in October.
