Nearly $7 Million in Road Improvements Awarded in Dewey County

OKLAHOMA CITY – Two contracts totaling nearly $7 million were awarded this month for much-needed road repairs in Dewey County, Sen. Bryce Marlatt and Rep. Mike Sanders recently announced.

According to the Oklahoma Department of Transportation, the first project involves reconstructing the county bridge over Lone Creek, just over three miles east of Webb as well as nearly one mile of the approaching roadways. The second project will involve resurfacing 20 miles of US-60 from the south SH-34 Junction extending east.

Marlatt (R-Woodward) said the State Transportation Commission awarded a contract worth just over $5.5 million on the first project to the Cornell Construction Company and a nearly $1.4 million contract on the second one to the Sewell Brothers.

"We need to do everything we can to improve the state’s transportation infrastructure and these projects will help us get one step closer,” said Marlatt. “I’m pleased that these projects will help provide a smoother and safer commute for local residents and visitors to the area. Our citizens deserve nothing less.”

Once construction begins, the two projects are estimated to be completed within five months.

"Our roads and bridges need to be repaired and rebuilt. This is not only an economic issue but a public safety issue. Both Sen. Marlatt and myself are committed to make this happen,” said Sanders (R-Kingfisher).
