A planned bypass of Muskogee by US Highway 69 appears to be on hold, according to documents released by the department of transportation.

A letter penned by Tim J. Gatz, secretary of transportation designate, says the department is now looking to improve the existing highway instead of rerouting it around Muskogee.

“With consideration for the feasibility of delivering improvements” such as the bypass, he writes, “we recommend suspending any further discussion of this alternative indefinitely.”

The letter goes on to ask State Rep. Avery Frix of Muskogee for “assistance in establishing a target date to reconvene a public forum” on how to move forward improving the existing route.
