Concrete Repairs on South Lincoln Drive, Continues Program for Cheaper Road Construction

Starting Monday, March 28th the City of Enid will begin construction on South Lincoln Drive to repair concrete panels. Construction will take 3 weeks to complete. The City of Enid often does smaller road construction projects like this which is part of a strategy to save the city money.

Assistant City Manager Scott Morris says that the reason the City does these smaller-scale road construction projects is so that the city doesn’t get bogged down with million-dollar construction projects to repair an entire road.

The city will instead repair small sections of the road that are in the worst shape. Morris said that $600,000 was budgeted for this proposal over the last 2 years, it was so effective that the city received an additional $400,000 in funding for the program according to Morris.

Another benefit is that the program allows the city to repair roads all over Enid instead of going entire roads at a time.
