THINGS TO DO

Friday, October 1, 2021, 7:01 AM

Two bridges deemed too rickety to even hold the weight of a school bus have now been completely renovated, according to County Commissioner Ken Doke.

Using funds from the state, the county was able to improve the load limits on the bridges from 3 tons (around the weight of the average car). School buses on average weigh 12 tons. The bridges are now rated at 34 tons.

“We have reduced the number of deficient bridges in Muskogee County nearly by half,” Doke said.

A ribbon-cutting for the new bridges was Wednesday.
