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 (Mar. 22)

GOOD. Water stained; 65 degrees; 0.58 feet below pool. Striped bass are fair with the bite hit-or-miss. The bite can be tougher while the fish start to spawn. Fish in 15-30 feet of water on structure or out in open water with Alabama rigs or swimbaits. Report by John Blasingame, Adventure Texoma Outdoors. Striped bass are good on live bait drifting flats in 30-50 feet of water. A few warmer weeks and the stripers will go spawn. A lot of smaller fish on humps in 25-30 feet of water fishing live bait. Crappie are fair on brush in 8-10 feet of water fishing jigs but the minnow bite will turn on in the creeks soon. Catfish are slow anchoring with cut shad in 5-15 feet of water near the rivers. Warmer weather ahead will have them feeding before the spawn. Report by Jacob Orr Lake Texoma Guaranteed Guide Service.
