OKLAHOMA CITY – A contract was awarded for asphalt resurfacing work in Canadian County, state Rep. Mike Sanders announced today.
According to the Oklahoma Department of Transportation, the project will involve asphalt resurfacing on State Highway 3, about one mile south of the Kingfisher County Line in Okarche and extend south to State Highway 4 in various locations.
The State Transportation Commission awarded the nearly $460,000 contract to Schwarz Paving Co., Inc. The Oklahoma City company was the lowest of four bidders for the job.
Once construction begins, the project is estimated to be completed within one month.
“This project is one of the many reasons I continue to advocate for road and bridge funding,” said Sanders, R-Kingfisher. “After years of neglect, we are very rapidly updating our infrastructure, which increases both public safety and economic activity in Western Oklahoma.”
