Sam has worked in several different aspects of design while at MacArthur and has spent time working with ACPA’s WinPas pavement design software.

Brody Branson is a Construction Management student at Oklahoma State University who spent the summer working as an intern for Allen Contracting. Brody was able to gain broad concrete paving experience including spending time working on the construction of a variety of concrete pavement projects. He will be returning to OSU this Fall as a Sophomore.

Lindsay Street Bridge Opens in Norman

After two years of being under construction, hundreds of citizens joined ODOT, City of Norman and OK/AR ACPA member Sherwood Construction for the first crossing of the newly opened Lindsay Street bridge across Interstate 35 in Norman.

This bridge is the second Single Point Urban Interchange (SPUI) built in Oklahoma and now carries the distinction of being Oklahoma’s widest bridge. And, of course, this project boasts lots and lots of beautiful portland cement concrete pavement! Great job Sherwood Construction!
