Road and Bridge Report: District 1 (Sept 2013 pt. 2)


It has been a busy September for District 1 as we work to oil and chip a number of roads in the area. Last week, crews worked on 82nd Street and Oklahomna 36, working south for three miles.

This week, the focus early in the week is the removal of rock on Wolfe Road, from 180th Street back to the west. Once the rock is removed, the road will be primed, oiled and chipped.

Crews will also be recycling on 135th Street, between North Drive and King Road. The final area of focus will be the town of Fletcher, where crews will work to recycle five miles of road in the area.

Thank you for your continued patience on this endeavor. Please pay attention to all crews and signs in the roads.

Road crews will be working on Gooden this week, preparing and oil and chipping, between 90th Street and Trail Road. Once completed, crews will move to Sheridan Road, south of Oklahoma 36. The crews will work west from there, prepaing previously recycled roads for the oil and chip process.

As always, thank you for your patience and please pay attention to all construction signs and workers on the road. 


Road and Bridge Report: District 3 (August 2013)


The summer rains have been a welcome event, but they have caused us to be behind in the number of roads we had planned to oil and chip, as well as the mowing.  Also, we are one man short on our mowing crew.

The contractor did complete the widening of the narrow bridge on Four Mile Road just north of Tackle Box Road.  This will make this road safer.  There have been several fatalities at that bridge in recent years.

The crew oiled and chipped a mile on Post Oak Road between Bishop and Coombs roads, two miles of Crater Creek Road between Old Cache Road and Lee Blvd, and a mile of Paint Road between Gore and Lee Blvd. They have completed a portion of Tackle Box Road, and will finish it before moving on to Four Mile and Stoney Point roads.

We had the opportunity to put a two inch overlay on Deyo Mission Road between Lee Blvd and old Cache Road.  The county crew got the road ready to be asphalted by T & G Construction Co.  The project has been completed.

The construction of Phase 1 of the 112th Street project has begun.  Lawton is responsible for milling up the existing road surface and putting in the cross drains.  We are waiting on Lawton to put in the cross drains before we can do our part in preparing the road and shaping the drainage ditches.

Earlier in the year, we had applied to the Oklahoma Department of Transportation’s Revolving Fund for the purchase of 3 new 10-wheel dump trucks.  That was approved and on the first of August we took delivery on three 2014 Mack trucks.  This is a great addition to the District’s aging truck fleet.

This week, District 1 will be focusing its efforts in three main areas:

Early in the week, crews will be chipping four miles north of Elgin, in the Fletcher area, which was primed Friday.

Next, crews will move onto Cove Acres and Happy Hollow, chipping those selected area.

Finally, the week will conclude with work on Pond Creek, off of Kinney, south of Elgin. The road will be chipped.

All progress this week is weather permitting. Thank you for your patiance as we look to improve travel conditions in your area.

BY Thursday, efforts will be focused on priming from Meers/Porter Hill to Welch Road, as well as King Road from 195th Street to 225th Street. 

The week will conclude with work on 225th, from County Line to North Drive.

Thank you for your patience with us. Please pay attention to crews and street signs.
