Meade Lake Road Will Remain Closed South of Templeton Farms
UPDATE - MAY 24
The Meade Lake Road Bridge construction is still on schedule! The first side of the bridge was completed during that wonderful stretch of nice weather, and Chris-Hill Construction has now moved to the opposite side. Piles will soon be driven into that side, and once that is completed, the crew will work on the top (and final) layer of bridge construction!
As you can see from the photos, the rain slowed the crew down for a few days and made for a muddy embankment! However, the 6 week construction timeline (from May 3rd, the day they broke ground) is still the target goal. Some bad weather was factored into the timeline, because Mother Nature is always consistent -- if there's a project being started in the Town of Atoka (or a BBQ fest scheduled), there WILL be rain!
As you can see from the photos, the difference between the first bridge and the one being constructed now is apparent! The new bridge will be wider, longer, and is being made of more durable materials. We at Town Hall are excited to have a sturdy, SAFE bridge to withstand the test of time.
As always, thank you for your patience during this construction. While we always strive to get you to and from home quickly, our #1 goal is always to ensure the safety of every citizen who travels our roads. To do that, we have to maintain the highest standards of work product.
