MANNFORD, OK -- The stimulus money is coming in, and the Oklahoma Department of Transportation is eager to get started on road projects.

The first stimulus project will be in the Mannford area over Keystone Lake, on State Highway 151 over State Highway 51.

Two structurally deficient bridges will be replaced as part of the $7.1 million project that is expected to last six months.

"It's stimulus money, and we need to get it spent as fast as we can," ODOT construction engineer Paul Green said. "We did wait until after Memorial Day to start that work, but it's time to get it started. We're excited about getting our money put into the roads."

Traffic will be affected. State Highway 151 over the dam will be closed during the project, but there will be detours.
