Chickasaw Nation road projects cited on national, state levels

Ada —

“This is the first award given to us where we were in full control of the project,” Ellis said.

The American Concrete Pavers Association issued the award for the “overall quality of the project” using a standard of “what it was like before construction and what it is like now.”

The Chickasaw Nation partnered with the city of Ada to widen the road, installed two left turn lanes onto Latta Road that are regulated by traffic lights, removed a confusing and dangerous tree-lined center median and even installed a sidewalk for pedestrians.
