The State of Oklahoma will close a portion of U.S. Highway 60 in Nowata County beginning next month. The Oklahoma Department of Transportation plans to replace two bridges on US-60 east of the US-169 junction.
Work that will have a significant impact on traffic through early 2020 is scheduled to start Monday, December 3rd. Beginning at 8a on the 3rd crews will begin closing all lanes of east and westbound traffic on US-60 from three miles east of the US-169 junction to about three miles west of the State Highway 28 junction. You will be directed to use US-169 and SH-28 as a detour.
The 8.4 million dollar project will replace the US-60 bridges over the Verdigris River and also at Kentucky Creek. The spans are located approximately four and five miles east of the US-169 junction.
The overall project is expected to complete in early 2020, weather permitting.
