Please Texomans: Drive Safe on the Willis Bridge




The old Willis Bridge on TX SH 377/OK 99 is under construction. 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!
