As the 80-year-old Elm Creek Bridge east of Pawhuska sits abandoned, awaiting removal, construction continues on a new bridge structure approximately two miles away near Osage Hills State Park. Both are part of a $37 million improvement project which is currently underway on U.S. Highway 60. Work along the five-mile stretch started in early 2014 and the anticipated 30-month project is on schedule to reach “substantial completion” (with all highway traffic to be placed on the new alignment) before this winter. Overall completion remains on track for spring 2017, a spokeswoman for the Oklahoma Department of Transportation said last week. An estimated three million cubic yards of earth is expected to be moved in the course of the project. ODOT officials added that more rock was discovered than had been expected, which has necessitated additional blasting during the project’s excavation phase. Jack Buzbee/J-C Correspondent
