Poteau, Oklahoma - According to Poteau Street Commissioner, Jim Seale, the street department will be replacing a bridge located by Bill J Barber Park on Paul Mathis Drive.

The Bridge on North Paul Mathis Drive at Bill J Barber Park will be closed to through traffic starting at 6:30 am on Monday, July 17, 2017 and will remain closed for a month to undergo extensive repairs.

If needing to access the Bill J Barber Park from the south, you'll need to come via Mockingbird or Stadium Lane from North Broadway,” said Seale. “If you normally travel south on N Paul Mathis to access Franzini for the bypass, you'll need to instead travel south on N Broadway and turn on College Avenue. When College hits N Paul Mathis you will take a right followed by a sharp left which will put you on Franzini and on your way to the bypass.”


The City of Poteau apologizes for any inconveniences this may cause and they appreciate your patience as the street department renovates this bridge.
