Robert, I'm not sure where you're starting from, but if you pass anywhere near Sherman on the way, here's another option. I've been going up Hwy 75 to Atoka and then taking Hwy 3 into Broken Bow.

Google says it is 15 minutes slower than going through Clarksville, but it has a divided highway most of the way and it sure seems faster than taking 82 across. (Just remember that a couple of the littler OK towns always seem to have someone sitting at their city limit checking speeds and writing tickets.)

I thought seriously about going to Atoka and across Hwy 3. Should have come home that way just to check it out. I went down 37 to 195 into Paris and across 82 on Saturday. Only problem is if you get behind someone on that 195 driving slow it has lots of curves. Its about 40 miles across 195 to 37. The bridge on 37 was fine on Saturday with plenty of room to come up.

Yep, that's the reason I started going through Atoka.

The bridge at Little River south of Broken Bow washed out. Just south of the old iron bridge. Saw video on the news. Not sure if that is the place you are talking about.

I agree!!! They especially like to sit on Hwy 3 as you're leaving town.

FYI -

McCurtain County

US-259 is closed at the Red River due to flooding-related damage on both the Oklahoma and Texas sides of the Red River bridge. Drivers must find an alternate route traveling into Texas.

SH-87 is closed between US-259 and the Arkansas state line.
