The following email was sent along to the Oklahoma Bicycle Society mailing list:

In Mid October we will be starting a bridge rehabilitation project for the City of Oklahoma City, which involves the re-habilitation of the truss bridge on the north side of Lake Overholser.

We will be removing the concrete deck and replacing the floor beams and related structural steel items and placing a new concrete deck.

The road/bridge will be closed to all traffic once we start the concrete removals on the bridge deck.

While this certainly will be an inconvenience for us who make the Overholser loop a regular ride, but it will be worth it to improve the bridge surface and help preserve this Route 66 landmark.
