Road maintenance

I was pleasantly surprised to find that Tulsa County crews removed most of the sand from the Bird Creek bridges on Mingo Road. During the ice event two weeks ago, they applied tons of it, and it formed almost a small beach on the roadside.

But coming home today (into the wind at about freezing!) I found that the sand was largely gone, except next to the bridge parapets.

This is a good use of taxpayer money, because the sand can be re-used, and removing it from the roadway increases traction for motor vehicles and cyclists alike.

Thank you Tulsa County Road Maintenance!
