A ribbon cutting was held on March 1, 2016 to celebrate the newly rebuilt Bridge 72 over Wickliffe Creek in Mayes County. The new bridge is a 120ft single span PC beam bridge offset to the southwest of the existing bridge. The new alignment required meeting an existing superelevated curve and was constrained by the close proximity of a cemetery.
The project also included 0.4 miles of approach roadway on Kenwood Road, as well as a turning lane that was added for a dangerous intersection west of the bridge.
The original bridge was a 13.5ft-14ft-14ft-13.5ft steel I-beam span located 3.0 miles east of the town of Salina. GUY was pleased to work with the Cherokee Nation and Mayes County on the new Bridge 72 over Wickliffe Creek. Together, we are able to improve safety for the travelling public. https://lnkd.in/edzDZrY
