Cherokee Nation recently assisted Rogers County in repairing a 5-mile road and with the reconstruction of a bridge on a busy thoroughfare. In 2014, the tribe completed 28 road and bridge projects throughout the Cherokee Nation. The projects, totaling more than $13 million in federal and tribal funding, resulted in more than 64 miles of road and bridge improvements.
“We are very proud of the partnership with Cherokee Nation,” said Dan DeLozier, Rogers County commissioner for District 1. “Without the tribe, it would take us a lot longer to get road and bridge projects done. Because of their help, we can stretch our funding a little further to do more for our community.”
