SH-51 will intermittently open to two lanes near Stillwater for college football season
East and westbound SH-51 will be intermittently opened to two lanes between Vassor Rd. and Meridian Rd. to help with traffic during Oklahoma State home games this season. Drivers can expect:
- Beginning at 4 p.m. Friday's before home games: eastbound SH-51 will have two lanes open, while westbound traffic will remain narrowed to one lane.
- During and after the game: westbound SH-51 will have two lanes open while eastbound traffic will be narrowed to one lane.
- Two hours after the game: both east and westbound SH-51 will be narrowed to one lane.
Drivers should plan additional travel time and expect delays. US-177 and SH-33 can be used as alternate routes.
SH-51 is currently narrowed to one lane in each direction as part of an ongoing bridge rehabilitation project. The $8 million project, awarded to C3 Construction, Inc. by the Transportation Commission in Nov. 2022, will rehabilitate a bridge over an unnamed creek between Vassor Rd. and Meridian Rd.
