In a letter to legislators ODOT Director and Oklahoma Secretary of Transportation Desginate announced further suggestion of a bypass around Muskogee is suspended indefinitely.
Our work is now complete. We will be monitoring what ODOT plans to do for US69 through Muskogee but are very confident that the new leadership at the agency including Transportation Secretary Designate/Director Tim Gatz and newly appointed Transportation Commissioner Bob Coburn will decide what is best for both transportation needs in District 1 and the community. Thanks to all those that supported our efforts. Some doubted anything could be done to stop ODOT from implementing plans that would have had a disastrous effect on Muskogee. It was a long road, but a good lesson to anyone who works for a governmental agency to never forget exactly who employs them. Working together, we reminded them - in the end, they work for us.
