The Oklahoma Department of Transportation (ODOT), is considering improvements to the bridge and approaches on SH-28 over Verdigris River approximately one mile east of US-169, north of Nowata in Nowata County.

The project is currently scheduled to be let for construction in Federal Fiscal Year 2020 and will necessitate closure of the bridge and the approach roadway on State Highway 28. It is anticipated that the road closure will last approximately 270 days, with incentives and disincentives to reduce the closure time. We are considering using the following as a state highway detour during the bridge closure: Eastbound - From Junction of US-169 and SH-28, proceed south on US-169 to Junction US-169/US-60, then east on US-60 to Junction US-60/SH-28 and then north and west on SH-28 (approximately 24 miles maximum) - see attached map. Once the project is let for construction, information on actual date of closure and duration of closure can be obtained from the ODOT Field Division at (918) 838-9933.

A public meeting to present initial project information and receive public input regarding the closure will be held at 6:00 p.m. on March 3, 2016 at the Nowata City County Library, located 224 South Pine Street in Nowata. The purpose of this meeting is to inform the public and solicit comments about the Department’s proposed bridge closure.

Additional information about the project and the upcoming meeting can be obtained from the following:
