The Oklahoma Department of Transportation says a letter a law firm sent to Cleveland property owners with apparent threat of eminent domain is false.
The state is not taking over any property on the city’s southwest side, an ODOT spokesperson said.
One of the letters obtained by The American told a local resident their property lies in the area to be acquired for a right of way for the U.S. Highway 64 bridge replacement. The letters appear to have been sent to landowners along Pogue Street, North C Street and the south side of West Caddo, which is not near the current bridge/highway.
