Hwy 69 South backed up past Electric Avenue.

McALESTER — Traffic is backed up several on US Highway 69 south beginning at Commanche Avenue while state workers remill the pavement, officials say.

"We are remilling the pavement on the south bound side and once that is done we will be working on the north side of the highway," said Pat Thornton of the Oklahoma Department of Transportation.

Pittsburg County Sheriff Joel Kerns said the traffic is backed up past Electric Avenue.

Thornton said he wasn't able to provide a time-frame for the completion of the work at this time.
