The Oklahoma Department of Transportation (ODOT) began programming the replacement of the Nuyaka bridges in the late 1980’s and Crafton Tull began working on the project around1996. The project stopped and started several times through the years, including originally starting the job in metric only to re-do in English years later.
The Okmuglee County Commissioner, Bob Hardridge, praised Mike Burns, PE and Senior VP at Crafton Tull, many times for sticking with the project, answering questions through the years, and getting the project ready for bids when they finally got the funding and permits. On Tuesday August 16th the bridges officially opened! The group that gathered out there is very proud of their new bridges and grateful for the work provided by Crafton Tull.
