ADA, Okla. -- A busy stretch of road in Ada is getting a needed makeover.

East 16th Street is undergoing a new milling and overlay. Thousands of vehicles use the busy street on a daily basis because of its connection to Broadway and Mississippi avenues.

Public Works Director John McKay said doing the project with city workers instead of contractors saves money for taxpayers.

"It saves us from a lot of engineering, bidding costs; the guys are just able to continue working on this," he said.

Weather permitting, the city hopes the project will be complete by year's end.
