The nearly $3.4 million accelerated bridge replacement project on SH-51 over Cottonwood Creek in Creek County was the first state highway bridge in Oklahoma to utilize new techniques to build a bridge adjacent to its final location and then move the structure into place. Rather than closing the bridge and detouring traffic for several months, this project only closed the bridge for 11 days, saving an estimated $2 million in user costs that the lengthy detour would have cost drivers.
This video provides a brief introduction to the issues associated with enforcement activities related to commercial motor vehicles utilizing Oklahoma’s highway transportation network. An agreement created in 2008 and ratified by the State Legislature in 2009 created a partnership between the Oklahoma Corporation Commission, the Oklahoma Department of Transportation and the Oklahoma Turnpike Authority. The agreement proposed the development of 9 “Port of Entry” facilities across the state, including a virtual site, in addition to upgrading existing weigh stations. These new Port of Entry facilities will employ state-of-the-art processes that, using a combination of weigh in motion, sensors, readers and cameras, will instantly process permits, registrations, fuel tax payments, safety ratings and other documents to allow 180 to 200 trucks to be inspected per hour saving fuel and time and increasing safety by eliminating a backup of trucks onto the highways waiting to be manually inspected.
