ATOKA COUNTY, Okla. (KXII) - An Atoka roadway will be closed starting next month for construction.
Officials say Boggy Depot Rd. will be closed for construction from the U.S. Highway 69/75 intersection to west of the Tushka School's baseball and softball fields.
County Commissioners say access to the will be given to those who live on the south side of the road as well as the RV park.
Construction on the stretch of road is expected to be finished before the start of the school year. County Commissioners say they closed the road to cut down on construction time so school busses will have access to the stop light by the time school is back in session.
