The Oklahoma Department of Transportation (ODOT), in cooperation with the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) is proposing to improve SH-51 over East Beaver Creek and the SH-51/US-77 Junction in Logan County. The existing bridge on SH-51 over East Beaver Creek is considered structurally deficient and the existing SH-51 roadway has sharp curves, no shoulders, and limited sight distance at the SH-51/US-77 junction. In addition, the railroad bridge over SH-51 does not have enough vertical clearance. The purpose of the project is to correct the structurally deficient bridge and the vertical and horizontal curves on SH-51, improve the geometry of the SH-51/US-77 junction and provide adequate vertical clearance under the railroad bridge. The project is currently programmed for construction in Federal Fiscal Year 2018 in the current 8-Year Construction Work Plan.
As part of our efforts to keep the public informed of this project and involved in the decision process, ODOT has scheduled a public meeting. The meeting will include a presentation about the proposed improvements and why the improvements are needed, the type of improvements proposed, and the expected impacts to motorists and the surrounding community. The purpose of this meeting is to get public input on the proposed improvements prior to final design and construction.Additional information about the project and the upcoming meeting can be obtained from the following:
