From Staff Reports

A narrow bridge in northeast Canadian County is due to be replaced.

The bridge is on Waterloo/Azalea Road just west of County Line and east of Sara Road in far northeast Canadian County.

Right-of-way and land acquisition is underway, said Commissioner Marc Hader, Canadian County District I.

The bridge is near the Falcon Lake addition. Bids will be taken for the work in late spring, 2021, the Oklahoma Department of Transportation reports.

An ODOT traffic count in the area is about 1,700 a day.

Populations have increased in recent years in the Cashion area northeast of Piedmont. The north side of the road is in Kingfisher county.

Environmental studies have been completed for the project. Utility relocation agreements have also been filed.

The cost will be about $700,000 for the new concrete bridge, an ODOT spokeswoman reports.

Funding is through the ODOT Oklahoma County Improvement for Roads and Bridges program.
