A $1.4 million project to improve three bridges on State Highway 20, east of the State Highway 99 junction in Hominy, was scheduled to begin Tuesday.


Work will be done on one bridge at a time, beginning with the SH-20 bridge at Hominy Creek. It will then proceed to the Wild Horse Creek Bridge and then to the Boar Creek Bridge. Improvements will be made to the bridge decks and to the substructures.


During construction, traffic will be narrowed to one lane at the bridge and temporary signals will be in place. Drivers are urged to plan ahead for extra travel time in these areas and to obey the signals for the safety of other drivers and work crews.


The overall project is expected to be completed in early 2019, weather permitting.
