I, too, understand the new weight limit is a pain but there just might be a better solution than driving to Norman. Best wishes.
    The truck empty will be at least half the weight the bridge can handle, so the percentage is going to be worse than a 9:10 ratio.

    There is scuttlebutt that the moneys used for this bridge is going to be diverted from the 77 construction from Noble to Lex after the curve part is complete. Don't know if the source is reliable, so trying to find out if this is true or not.
