Pittsburg County commissioners signed off Monday on an agreement expected to lead to an $800,000 grant to begin improvements on a road leading to an alternative entry to the McAlester Army Ammunition Plant.

City of McAlester Economic Development Director Kirk Ridenour gave the commissioners a brief overview of the project before they took a vote on the matter.

They were asked to approve the funding agreement between the Oklahoma Development Finance Authority and the McAlester National Defense and Industrial Development Authority, which is a public trust of the city of McAlester, and with Pittsburg County.

It's for what is officially called the "McAlester/ Pittsburg County/ McAlester Army Ammunition Plant/Haywood Road Access Control Project Point P3 Project." It's designed to improve trucking access to McAAP at the Haywood Gate.
