BARTLESVILLE, Okla. - Officials with the Oklahoma Department of Transportation are warning those planning on traveling State Highway 123 between Bartlesville and Dewey to watch out for construction.
Washington County Superintendent Brian Sutton told 2NEWS ODOT crews on Wednesday will begin the second half of their work to overlay sections of the road over a 2-mile stretch.
The work that began Monday is to fix where recent drought conditions have caused the pavement on the road's outer edges to settle.
According to Sutton, motorists traveling the area during the patchwork should plan to find the two-lane narrowed to one lane and a flagman to direct traffic.
As always, officials warn drivers to navigate the construction area slowly and with caution, especially when workers are present.
