    In order to meet Federal Highway safety requirements, the Oklahoma Department of Transportation (ODOT) is proposing State Job Piece 27908(07) to correct the vertical and horizontal alignment of US 70 by widening the highway to the east and replacing the east Little River bridge and the two east overflow structures; along with grading, drainage, and resurfacing associated with the proposal. The widening proposed project would discharge 1.36 acres of soil and rock for roadbed construction into jurisdictional emergent wetlands for the road widening and 0.65 acre of riprap and concrete piers into the Little River and overflow waterways for the bridge replacements.
