ODOT District Six Receives National Concrete Pavement Award

ODOT District Six and Guymon Residency were recognized at the Oklahoma Department of Transportation Commission’s January meeting for receiving a national award from the American Concrete Pavement Association for their role in the reconstruction of the US-64/US-385 Junction in Boise City, OK.

The Boise City project took home the Gold award for the Municipal Streets & Intersections Greater Than 30,000 Square Yards category. The project was engineered and owned by the Oklahoma Department of Transportation and constructed by IHC Scott of Englewood, CO. This project reconstructed Boise City’s Town Square where US-64 and US-385 come together and encompass the County Courthouse. Many challenges were met by the District, Residency and Contractor as they worked to reduce the impact on the courthouse and many businesses affected by construction.
