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.

District 1 road crews will have a busy week this week, beginning with work on Carlson Street. Crews will be priming a stretch of road on Carlson from 120th Street to 150th Street. Once completed, crews will work north from 120th and Carlson, priming a half a mile.

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.

Now that the rain has subsided, it's time to get back to work!

Believe it or not, the rain is actually very beneficial to road construction. Despite not being able to oil and chip in the rain, the precipitation helps to harden the base in areas that have been primed, sort of a homemade concrete. The harder the base, the more steadfast the road will be afte the oil and chip process is completed.

This week, crews will be priming the area of 201th Street and Cross Road, as well as 210th and Townley Road. Crews will then begin priming at Cross and 240th Street, heading north.

All areas will be primed and go through the oil and chip process this week.

Thank you for your patience and please pay attention to road signs and crews working in the areas.  


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


Now that the weather is heating up, road crews can begin making good head way on the oil and chip process. This week, crews will focus on an area north on east Gore Boulevard.

The week will begin with oil and chip work on Gore and Cache, working east of trail road. Upon completion, crews will then move to 120th Street, north of Gore. Chipping will also be done on 180th Street and 240th Street. Townley will also be chipped this week.

Due to corn harvest this week, there will be roads in the area that are skipped, but we will come back to those. We cannot begin the oil and chip process with harvesters on the roads. The traffic would cause the newly fixed road to bleed, or seep oil back to the top. 

Thank you for your patience and please pay attention to signs and people on the roads.
