A contract was awarded this month for a bridge repair in LeFlore County, Sen. Mark Allen and Rep. Brian Renegar recently announced.
According to the Oklahoma Department of Transportation, the project will involve rehabilitating the State Highway 1 bridge over Rock Creek just west of the LeFlore County line.
Sen. Allen (R-Spiro) said the State Transportation Commission awarded just over a $356,000 contract on the project to B & B Construction Service J.T., Inc. “This will improve driving conditions enormously,” said Senator Allen. “It’s good to see this much-needed project getting done.” The Clayton company was the lowest of five bidders for the job, said Rep. Renegar (D-McAlester).
Once construction begins, the project is estimated to be completed within two months.
