The U.S. Department of Transportation announced on Monday it has debarred a Muskogee road contractor. That announcement means George Paul Glover and his company, Glover Construction cannot bid on any road projects involving federal money.

A News On Six investigation back in May looked at George Glover and his construction company.

Monday's debarment lasts through next August and includes two of his employees. Glover's work is under scrutiny, in part, because of a stretch of state Highway 64 in Warner, which started falling apart before Glover Construction was finished paving it. The Oklahoma Department of Transportation says it can prove George Glover used substandard gravel from Glover's own quarry.

ODOT is also trying to debar George Glover and his company. That ruling is expected sometime next month.
