Oklahoma Department of Transportation could finish repairing the U.S. 62 bridge over Ross Lake within a month, an ODOT spokeswoman says.

Westbound highway traffic over the bridge remains limited to one lane while contractors strengthen bridge supports, said Kenna Mitchell, public information manager for ODOT Divisions 1 and 8.

"They are working on encasing the pier caps with additional concrete right now, and those will require some time for the concrete to reach strength," Mitchell said. "Traffic is narrowed to one lane at a time, which allows crews to safely work as they install additional concrete drill shafts from the bridge piers down into the bedrock."
