The new fast-cast bridge was being installed this week on the Old Morris Highway, according to District 2 County Commissioner David Walker. This structure will hopefully be the permanent solution to replacing the bridge and roadway that has suffered damage and collapse several times over the last few years due to heavy rains and flooding in the Okmulgee area. After the concrete is poured, the roadway work will start. Weather permitting, it will be completed soon according to Walker. Weather has slowed the project but it will be a long term solution, he added.
