ODOT to begin resurfacing US64 in Sand Springs on Monday

A $2 million project to resurface approximately five miles of US-412/US-64/SH-51 between 161st W. Ave. (over Shell Creek) and 81st W. Ave. in Sand Springs is scheduled to begin Monday, March 6. 

Crews will be patching sections of the roadway before the resurfacing operations start. Drivers should be alert to crews and equipment moving into the area on Monday and can expect delays throughout the project, especially during peak travel times.

Lane closures will be announced in the Traffic Advisories section of www.odot.org as they are scheduled. Drivers can sign up to receive the daily traffic advisories by clicking the “Sign Up For News & Alerts” link on the main page of this website.

The overall project is expected to complete in early summer 2017, weather permitting.

Additionally, a contract was awarded for bridge rehabilitation work in Tulsa County, Sen. Dan Newberry and Rep. Glen Mulready recently announced.

According to the Oklahoma Department of Transportation, the project will involve bridge rehabilitation work on several roads and bridges on I-44 Gilcrease Expressway ramp over the I-244 western junction in Tulsa.

Newberry, R-Tulsa, said the State Transportation Commission awarded the nearly $6 million contract to Becco Contractors, Inc. The Tulsa company was the lowest of three bidders for the job, said Mulready, R-Tulsa.

Once construction begins, the project is estimated to be completed within eight months.
