THINGS TO DO

Friday, July 2, 2021, 9:15 AM

Mayor Marlon Coleman held a press event to announce that the state will widen US 69 to six lanes in Muskogee, starting in 2024.

The event was originally scheduled to be held on the demolition siteof the Deluxe Inn, but had to be moved indoors due to inclement weather. Bill Johnson, owner of Johnson Enterprises at 715 S. 32nd Street, stepped up to offer his building as an alternative location for the gathering.

Former Mayor Bob Coburn was also honored with a key to the city at today’s event. Coburn left his mayoral term early to accept a position as highway commissioner with the Oklahoma Department of Transportation and has remained a part of the progress on the Highway 69 project.
