Road and Bridge Report: District 1 Jan. 2014 pt 2)


Hope everyone is getting 2014 started out the right way, and continuing to pursue those New Year's resolutions. The weather has limited the work road crews in the district can proceed with, but it doesn't mean we have slowed down. Crews have been working in a number of areas withing the district, cleaning out ditches and removing debris, as well as other routine mainenance. If we missed any in your area, please call 580-492-4328.

Tin horns are also being placed at the intersection of Cache Road and Bethel Road to improve conditions.

As always, please pay attention to signs and crews in the roads. Thank you for your continued patience!


Road and Bridge Report: District 3 January 2014)


This past month snow, sleet and ice have occupied our time.  We estimate that during the last storm, we used over 500 tons of sand.  Much time was spent cleaning off bridges of an accumulation of ice and sand. 

At the request of Medicine Park officials, we sanded the major streets and hauled several loads of sand for them to use where needed.

We have purchased additional sanders from ODOT.  This will double our capability to sand roads and bridges during snow and ice weather conditions.

We rented a crack sealer to fill in the cracks that had developed in our asphalt roads due to drought conditions. We were particularly concerned about a number of cracks that had developed in the new portion of Lee Blvd.  By filling the cracks, it will prevent water from getting into the cracks and causing further damage to the road when it freezes.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! I truly hope all of you enjoyed the time spent with family over the holidays, I know I did. 

Distrcit 1 road crews will be working on clearing debris in the district until at least Friday. Due to the ice and wind, there are many downed limbs and brush blocking road ways. 

If there is anything debris on the roads in your area, please let us know at 580.492.4328.


Thank you and have a great week!


Road and Bridge Report: District 1 (Decl 2013 pt.1)


Winter weather may adversly affect the county, but we try to not let it bring road crews to a halt. Over the course of last week crews worked on Woodlawn, east of Oklahoma 65. Crews completed a number of improvements; including the clearing of a right of way, fixed a low water crossing and straighened out a dangerous curve in the road. 

This week focus will be shifted to the bridge on King Road. The road will be closed from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Tuesday, while crews work, but it will reopen that afternoon. Work will be completed on the bridge by friday.


Road and Bridge Report: District 3 (Nov. 2013)


We finally had our first fall freeze and have finished mowing ditches along graveled roads.  The growing season has been longer than normal and the weeds were tall.  Of course in Oklahoma, “What is normal weather?”   With the snow fall this past weekend, the County crew were busy sanding bridges & intersections.  In anticipation of icy winter weather, a crew has trimmed trees along tree lined roads and around bridges.

With cooler temperatures, this has ended our oil and chipping for this year. Our plans were to oil and chip the two miles of Stoney Point Road from State Highway 49 to Welch Road the week of October 25th, but two soft spots developed in the base of the first mile – one at Foxfire Road and one at Curtis Road.  We had to dig out the bad base, build it up and we finished the last mile from Tackle Box Road to State Highway 49 on Friday November 15.

Other roads we have oil and chipped since my last report are Lee Blvd. from Indiahoma Road to 157th Road and Red Elk Road from Cache Road to Lee Blvd.

We put a single oil and chip overlay on Gore Blvd. from Airport Road to Crater Creek Road, and on Bandy from Holsey Acres Road to New Cache Road.

We put asphalt millings on Stoney Point Road north of Meers-Porterhill Road and on Autumn Drive.
