Tug boat, barges hit bridge near Wagoner

Team Radio Marketing Group - April 10, 2017 10:54 am

The Oklahoma Department of Transportation and the U.S. Coast Guard responded to State Highway 51 and the Navigational Channel about five miles west of Wagoner in Wagoner County Monday morning.

Wagoner County officials reported at 5:41 a.m. that a tug boat towing four barges truck the SH 51 bridge. The Coast Guard requested that the bridge be shut down until a complete inspection of  the bridge could take place.

ODOT responded and requested assistance from the Oklahoma Highway Patrol for traffic control during the inspection and while photographs were taken.

The roadway has been reopened and although the bridge protectors were hit, no damage was found on the bridge.
