Sequoyah County District 1 Commissioner Ray Watts is taking steps to replace a problematic low-water bridge in the southeastern part of the county with a steel span bridge, a project that will also straighten North 4790 Road. Both the bridge replacement and the straightening of the road will better serve traffic in the area, which includes frequent usage by semi-trucks hauling corn, wheat, soybeans and other harvest from the rich bottomland along the Arkansas River.
