After a heavy mid-day rain "from the clouds" Monday (left photo), I figured there wouldn't be any more work on the streetscape project in front of my museum ... but not too long after the rain had stopped I was surprised by a heavy stream of water from "underground" spraying my window (under the awnings in the top right photo)

Frank Moreland switching a water meter to the new supply line was the source of water on the museum window above. -- Ted 3/31/2008

No Joke -- Decided to check the new bridge and Main Street progress while at the bank and got to watch a semi truck slowly backing towards the bypass to Broadway. Even after more than 4 months there are still apparently a few folks that expect to follow the Main Street route that is still a few months from completion. -- Ted -- 4/1/2008
The noon Thursday April 3rd Collinsville Chamber of Commerce monthly meeting will be held at the American Bank of Oklahoma (instead of the typical Library location).
Work continues on the new 4-lane bridge and roadway that will eventually re-connect Highway 169 and 5th Street back via Main Street.
