Work to begin on bridge

— Crews with Manhattan Road & Bridge move heavy equipment as they prepare dirt work at the Harris Road exits on the Muskogee Turnpike. Manhattan Road and Bridge began work this week on a 210-day contract to widen and resurface the deteriorating two-lane bridge. Tractor-trailer rigs cross the bridge daily to go to the Port of Muskogee. Port of Muskogee Director Scott Robinson said the bridge is being widened to four lanes.
