US-81 narrowed between Minco and South Canadian River through summer 2022
This project is weather permitting:
US-81 will be narrowed to one lane in each direction from about one mile south of SH-37 East/Main St. to SH-37 West/SH-152 West in Minco and will be narrowed to one lane with flaggers directing traffic from SH-37/SH-152 West to the South Canadian River bridge, just south of Union City, in Grady County from 6 p.m. to 7 a.m. nightly on weeknights beginning May 9 and continuing through summer 2022 for pavement resurfacing.
Drivers can expect lane shifts, uneven pavement and a reduced speed limit on US-81 during the project. Residents should also be prepared for construction noise and short-term overnight driveway closures during nighttime paving operations.
The Oklahoma Transportation Commission awarded the more than $2 million contract for this project to The Cummins Construction Co., of Enid.
