Road work for Route 66, and a planned power outage

Wilson Homes

Luther, Sept. 18 —A stretch of Route 66 between Luther and Wellston is about to get a resurface and widening job, just east of the Oklahoma-Lincoln county line. But before the roadwork starts, OG&E is notifying customers in the area about a planned outage on Tuesday to prepare for the project.

OGE OUTAGE DETAILS

  • What:  Scheduled Outage
  • When:  Tuesday, September 21, 2021, beginning at 5:00 PM, lasting for 3-5 hrs
  • Where:  Wellston, Luther, and the east side of Arcadia — specifically west of HWY 177 & HWY 66 to the east side of S. Hiwassee Road
  • Why:  As a result of the ODOT improvements being made along HWY 66 in Wellston, OG&E crews must perform a cutover and tie into the new portion of the line being built.  This action will result in customers being without power for a short period of time. 

The project will widen and resurface just less than three miles of Route 66, at a cost of $7 million. Haskell Lemon Construction Co., was awarded the project at an August Oklahoma Department of Transportation meeting.

ODOT CONTRACT

ODOT acquired nearly 32 acres of right-of-way from landowners to accommodate the project for the addition of paved shoulders on SH-66 between Pottawatomie Rd. and SH-66 Business just west of Wellston.
