A contract was awarded this month for road and bridge repair in Sequoyah County, Sen. Mark Allen and Rep. Ed Cannaday recently announced.
According to the Oklahoma Department of Transportation, the project involves the widening and resurfacing of six miles of SH-100 extending north from the city of Gore. The bridge in the area will also be repaired.
Sen. Allen (R-Spiro) said the State Transportation Commission awarded just under a $12 million contract on the project to Sherwood Construction, Inc. of Catoosa, Oklahoma. The company was the lowest of two bidders for the job, said Rep. Cannaday (D-Porum).
Once construction begins, the project is estimated to be completed within a year.
