OK roads, bridges inspected after earthquakes

Tulsa — The recent spate of strong earthquakes in central Oklahoma hasn't caused any significant damage to bridges and roads, according to the Oklahoma Department of Transportation.

The agency said ODOT crews inspect bridges in a five- to 10-mile radius from the epicenter of any earthquake that's magnitude 4.0 or larger. 

So far this week, Oklahoma has experienced two such earthquakes near Jones and Spencer.

"We have to make sure that not only are the bridges safe, but the roadway as well, as we check for cracks," said Kenna Carmon, spokeswoman for the Oklahoma Department of Transportation in northeast Oklahoma.
