McClain County District 2 Commissioner Wilson Lyles reports the county has received a safety grant for striping in some areas.
Lyles reported striping is complete from areas west of Purcell into the Washington area and into the Goldsby area.
These safety grants are made available through the Association of Central Oklahoma Governments (ACOG), Lyles said.
ACOG receives federal funds for safety projects to be applied for from all the counties and municipalities located within the Oklahoma City area regional transportation system (OCARTS). The applications are reviewed and scored on population and average daily traffic count (ADTC) within the eligible areas.
Lyles has been a member of the ACOG transportation board for 14 years.
This has been very advantageous for McClain County with bridge and road projects awarded within our county. Commissioner Lyles also states that folks will be seeing new signage in parts of the county that Districts 2 and 3 have been awarded. These safety projects are 100 percent funded.
“ACOG has been a valuable resource to McClain County and other entities who participate as our towns and cities have also benefited from funding ACOG has provided,” Lyles said.
