EDMOND — Redlands Construction Co. is installing four piers as part of its $220,000 city contract to rebuild the bridge on Sooner between Covell and Coffee Creek, said Larry Stevens, city manager.

The City of Edmond closed the bridge in September after Oklahoma Department of Transportation inspectors cited severe deterioration since the bridge’s previous inspection. ODOT recommended that the bridge should close.

“Our city engineering staff received temporary permission by ODOT to make temporary repairs on the bridge to get that open as soon as possible,” Stevens said.

Redlands Construction has 75 calendar days to complete the project by the end of April, Stevens said. | 341-2121
