Please Texomans: Drive Safe on the Willis Bridge




The old Willis Bridge on TX SH 377/OK 99 is in a construction zone. The feds, Oklahoma, and Texas are building a new bridge next to the old bridge. 

The speed limit is 45 MPH.

That means the speed limit is:

45 MPH, 24 Hours A Day, 7 Days a Week

The bridge workers are feeling more and more at risk this year. They feel their lives are in danger. 

Vehicles are flying through this construction zone at 80 MPH.

The lanes on the old Willis bridge have been rerouted and swerve at a 30 degree angle upon entering and exiting the bridge. 

The old bridge is clearly marked with barriers, construction cones, decreasing speed limits as you approach the bridge, and a flashing light at the south entrance. 

Not only are the workers at risk, but there are daily close calls with vehicles.

PLEASE SLOW DOWN ON THE WILLIS BRIDGE!

PLEASE OBEY ALL TRAFFIC LAWS!

PLEASE HEED THE CONSTRUCTION ZONE WARNINGS!

Fishing Report from TPWD (Nov. 30)

EXCELLENT. Water stained; 65 degrees; 1.52 feet below. Bird action is slowing, so utilize fish finders to locate fish. Striped bass are good using slabs, and some catches deadsticking. Report by John Blasingame, Adventure Texoma Outdoors. Striped bass are fair on live shad drifting flats in 20-35 feet of water. Also hitting slabs and swim baits under gulls in deeper water for the best bite at random times throughout the day. On Texoma the fish typically work the shad into the wind, so position your boat upwind of the birds and use your trolling motor. Catfish are fair on cut shad and prepared baits in 60-70 feet of water. Bigger fish are staging along flats in 20-30 feet of water but the trophy fish have been harder to catch. Crappie are excellent on jigs and dead minnows in 18-20 feet of water becoming very active on the brush piles but still catching a lot of smaller fish. Barely moving the jig with a slight pick-up to trigger the bite. Glow/chartreuse working in the clear water. Largemouth and smallmouth are fair on live shad along the gravel banks in 5-10 feet of water and swim baits off the bluffs in 10-15 feet of water. Carolina rig a craw on sunny days and work it slow off the banks out to 15-20 feet of water. Report by Jacob Orr Lake Texoma Guaranteed Guide Service.
