In his State of the County address, Commissioner Steve Hendrix said things are going well in District 2.

Hendrix said, "This year we were able to see the completion of 193rd Street from the Stone Canyon area down towards 6th Street north and did away with the old, windy, curvy, dangerous road."

In the Oologah area, he said, they replaced the old 169 Bridge in the southern business district of the town.

This project, he said, represented a joint effort between Oklahoma Department of Transportation, Cherokee Nation, Oologah and the county.

"District 2 did a lot of major asphalt projects this summer," he said. "in areas like Chestnut Park, Looking Glass..and a lot of neighborhoods that needed attention."

Hendrix boasted the county's partnership with the public golf course, Heritage Hills.

"We found a way to partner with them and work with them on selected improvement and renovation projects that were much needed. That's a great asset for our county. I'm excited to be a part of that and help them along," he said.

Hendrix said right now, in his district, he has at least five residential neighborhoods breaking ground. This will yield something like 300 new houses in the next few years.

"There's a lot going on and there will be some challenges—but they're good challenges. They're challenges we welcome, that show that Rogers County is thriving and growing," he said.
