WAGONER — A project to improve the sidewalks for a two-block area in downtown Wagoner begins later this month.

The project is on the north and south side of Cherokee Street from the railroad tracks and going east to Casaver Avenue by the county courthouse. The city received the go-ahead earlier this month from the Oklahoma Department of Transportation (ODOT) to start the Streetscape project.

The project includes installation of new lighting, landscaping and ramps to make both sides of Cherokee compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act.

"Think of yourself riding in a wheelchair, and you can't go into Boom-A-Rang Diner downtown because it's not ADA compatible," Mayor Albert Jones said. "The only kind of transportation we have in Wagoner is vehicular. The sidewalks are not walkable or usable for wheelchairs. If you're blind or on foot, you can't do it." FULL ARTICLE
