103-year old Atoka County bridge closed for maintenance

ATOKA, OK -- A 103-year old Atoka County bridge has been shut down for safety reasons.

Commissioner Philip Culbreath says they are working on installing new wooden planks for the Dairy Lane bridge.

But it will only be able to support vehicles weighing up to 8 tons once it's finished.

He says it's been over 20 years since the last time the bridge had maintenance work done.

It should reopen in a few weeks.
