MADILL, Okla. -- Several Marshall County infrastructure projects are now moving forward after funding returned to the County Improvements for Roads and Bridges Fund.

House Bill 2676, passed earlier this year by the Oklahoma Legislature, returned $30 million that had been taken from the fund last year.  

District 3 Commissioner Chris Duroy said while there's money still missing, this is a step in the right direction.

"These jobs now are letting, instead of wondering if they're going to," he explained. "Once a job lets, that means a contractor has been picked. They're on schedule to start within 60 to 90 to 120 days."

Duroy said he still hopes that lawmakers will return the rest of the $120 million that was taken from the county improvement fund.
