NOWATA COUNTY, Oklahoma -- The Oklahoma Department of Transportation says both east and westbound U.S. Highway 60 were closed Wednesday at the Verdigris River bridge.
ODOT says the closure is due to a scheduled bridge rehabilitation project which will last about two months.
The bridge is east of the community of Nowata.
Drivers have two options for a detour. Take Highway 28 north or a longer route south on Highway 169.
