Tulsa County leaders update a plan for improving bridges and some roadways over the next eight years. The Oklahoma Department of Transportation is asking for an eight year plan instead of a five year plan as in the past.

Chief Tulsa County Engineer Tom Rains says the state rates bridges in the county, and those at the bottom of the list that need to be replaced are used to prioritize the transportation plan. More funds may be available in future years due to Governor Fallin’s plan to add dollars for upgrading bridges throughout the state.
