Port of Muskogee officials turned the corner this week as they locked down funding for the construction of an industrial access road expected to serve two development projects planned on the city's south side.
Port Director Kimbra Scott said an out-of-cycle grant worth up to $1 million was secured April 25 from the City of Muskogee Foundation. The Oklahoma Transportation Commission decided during their regular meeting on Monday to approve the industrial access project and the remaining funds needed for the $3.3 million project.
