TULSA, OK -- The Oklahoma Department of  Transportation will begin a construction project in Claremore in just a few short days.  ODOT has announced that the Lynn Riggs (Highway 66) pavement rehabilitation project will begin at 12:01 a.m. on September 21. 

The construction area will be on Lynn Riggs from just north of Country Club Rd. to just north of Will Rogers Blvd.  APAC Construction, the contractor on this project, will close down one lane.

The project will kick off about two years ahead of schedule.

"When we first approached ODOT about this project, we were told that it was part of their plan for 2011 or 2012," said City Manager Troy Powell. 

The rehab project will consist of milling the asphalt, repairing the deteriorated areas, asphalt overlay and cleaning out the drainage. 

"We are asking our citizens to be patient and to prepare for congestion.  We know that construction is frustrating, but we are more than confident that this will pay dividends in the long run and creating a safer, more comfortable drive down Claremore's section of this historic highway," Powell said. 

APAC will be setting up message boards to warn drivers of the construction.  These boards will provide information on which lanes will be closed at which times.  The total cost of this project is $4,320,410.93 and will be 100% funded by ODOT.

"With help from Senator Sean Burrage, Representative Tad Jones and ODOT Director Gary Ridley, who have all been very supportive of traffic projects in and around Claremore, we were able to get this project bumped up to this year," said Powell said.
