The Cross Town I-40 bridge in Oklahoma City, over 1.5 miles long fracture critical bridge, was in serious need of replacement. In 2012 Governor Fallin, the State Legislature and Transportation Secretary Ridley supported the program to remove the used Cross Town beams and repurpose them on the County Highway System due to the large numbers of county deficient bridges. This program was included in the multi-millon dollar realignment project for I-40. The Governor and Legislature also included increasing the County Improvements for Roads and Bridges, CIRB, fund by another 5% from the State's Motor Vehicle Collection Tax to help fund the bridge replacements using these beams. Over 2,060 beams were moved to 21 staging areas around the state as counties made plans for their use.
