SH-18 narrows between Meeker and Chandler through September
This project is weather permitting:
SH-18 will be intermittently narrowed to one lane with pilot cars and flaggers directing traffic between US-62 in Meeker and SH-66 in Chandler in Lincoln County daily through September for resurfacing. The contractor will begin paving on the south end of the project in Meeker and pave the northbound lane of SH-18 toward Chandler, and then work back toward Meeker in the southbound lane. Work is expected to take about two-and-a-half months to complete, weather permitting.
Drivers should plan extra travel time and be prepared to stop, or should use an alternate route to avoid delays. Motorists are also reminded to use extra caution in the work zone and to be alert to reduced speed limits and uneven driving surfaces.
The Oklahoma Transportation Commission awarded the nearly $3 million contract for this project to Haskell Lemon Construction, of Oklahoma City.
