Kelly Avenue Paving Project Complete

In 2009, special federal funds were made available to the Oklahoma
Department of Transportation
and to counties for road improvement

Regulations required that the funding be used on roads considered
“shovel ready” and classified as “major collectors.” While this
excluded most roads in District 1, which are considered local roads
and minor collectors, it did provide funding to apply toward paving
one mile of Kelly Avenue, just north of Waterloo Rd.

On April 6, 2010, District 1 Commissioner Mark Sharpton attended a pre-
work conference with ODOT in Stillwater and learned that the project
is scheduled to begin in late April. Plans include deep patching,
followed by an asphalt overlay and roadway striping. The contractor
selected for the project through the ODOT bidding process is Markwell
Paving Company of Oklahoma City.

Sharpton said getting to pave Kelly was an unexpected blessing, since
the county is so strapped for money. “I’m glad for those who live
where they can enjoy the improvement,” Sharpton said, “But I want the
public to know we will be looking for ways to improve other areas

If you have questions about this project or other county issues, you
are welcome to call Commissioner Sharpton at 282-3581 or email
marksharpton@sbcglobal.net. More information about District 1 is
available at www.logancountyok.com and www.commissiondistrict1.com.
