Ribbon cutting set for District 1 bridge


Rogers County District 1 Commissioner Dan DeLozier will host a ribbon cutting ceremony  at 2 p.m. Monday at Bridge #79 over Dog Creek on E450 in Rogers County.
The bridge is located 1.9 miles east of Highway 66 on E450 road.   
The old 62 foot pony truss bridge was functionally obsolete and structurally deficient.  The old road had a slight jog in it due to the meandering stream.  There were many accidents on this road  due to the jog. The project consisted of straightening the road and the stream channel as well  
as replacing the bridge.  Rogers County and Guy Engineering worked closely with the Tulsa District U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to mitigate impacts on existing waterway.  This work involved minimizing fill in the floodplain and planting of over 300 hardwood trees to replace the  trees lost to construction.   
The new roadway has 12 ft lanes and 5 ft paved shoulders. The new bridge is a 110 ft long pre-stressed concrete beam bridge with 32 ft clear roadway width.  
Construction of this bridge was funded by Federal Bridge Replacement funds ($1 million) available to Tribes and secured by the Cherokee Nation and County Improvement to Roads and   Bridges ($300,000).  E450 Road is on the Cherokee Nation’s road inventory. Rogers County paid  for engineering, right-of-way acquisition and utility relocation costs.  
The bridge was completed and opened for traffic in November 2012.  The project was  completed April 2013 in coordination with the Tulsa District U.S. Army Corps of Engineers,   Cherokee Nation and the contractor Belk Bridge, Inc.
