New Highway Section In Durant Almost Ready To Open

DURANT, OK -- Drivers in Bryan County will soon be able to use a new route to get around town.

The western half of the new Highway 70 bypass is just weeks from opening, City Manager James Dunegan said.

In preparation, council members approved the wording of a resolution to ODOT on Friday, so the city can take charge of the current "Highway 70" including much of Main Street.

That name will shift to the new road. The eastern part of the bypass will take about two more years to complete.
