The Oklahoma Department of Transportation announced 48 road projects Monday totaling some $230 million, the first round of road and bridge repairs funded by federal stimulus funds.
But don't expect to see much construction if you live in Owasso. That's because Owasso's state senator, Randy Brogdon, doesn't want the federal money.
In light of Brogdon's grandstanding, we have a suggestion for ODOT: Make sure none of the road and bridge projects go to Owasso.
Fortunately, Gov. Henry and other state leaders would rather fix the state's bad bridges and roads than play partisan political games.
