County Roads, Bridges Improvement Projects in Kingfisher, Canadian Counties
The Oklahoma Transportation Commission recently approved the County Improvements for Roads and Bridges (CIRB) plan for state Fiscal Years 2021 through 2025 at its Aug. 3 meeting.
The plan, managed by the Oklahoma Department of Transportation (ODOT), is set to replace or rehabilitate 152 bridges in House District 59 – of which 62 are structurally deficient or functionally obsolete – and to improve 257 miles of county roads in our area in the next five years.
I cannot overstate the importance of the CIRB plan and what it means for our rural communities. Safe and well-maintained infrastructure is the lifeline for those who choose to live in rural areas because of our exceptional way of life but who wish to still conduct business and commerce with those in other areas.
