Work to restore 3 miles of Broadway from Waterloo to Simpson was near completion Friday, said Mark Sharpton, District 1 county commissioner. Atlas Paving Company began the process of resurfacing the road this week.
“Another improvement on the roadway will be the application of new safety striping,” Sharpton said.
A recent bid letting by the Oklahoma Department of Transportation resulted in Action Supply being the lowest bidder at $27,752.30. The bid will be awarded June 3, Sharpton said.
“The bid cost included safety striping not only for Broadway but for multiple areas of roadway within District 1,” Sharpton said. “The new paving and striping will tie into a previous 2 1/2 mile asphalt overlay on Broadway, which was completed in 2010. That project began at Simpson and ended one-half mile south of Seward Road.”
The new bridge on Charter Oak Road, west of Santa Fe, is also near completion. Sharpton said that contractors finished pouring traffic rail last week and are shifting their focus to install culverts, rip rap and sod for the roadway.
“We anticipate this roadway opening to the public soon,” Sharpton said.
