ODOT PUTS BYPASS ON HOLD-FOR NOW

No further work on US69 Bypass

ODOT Secretary Mike Patterson has informed city officials on December 18, 2018, that work on US69 through Muskogee and any public meeting have been placed on hold until further direction from the newly elected Governor Stitt is received.  This means that, for now, the bypass is on hold-subject to the Governor's direction.  We are very hopeful the Governor will direct ODOT to cancel the plans for the bypass-and direct ODOT to simply finish what they started (and already spent around $700,000.00 to begin) by completing the widening project ODOT previously approved.
