BRISTOW — A tractor-trailer broke down west of Bristow in a construction zone, causing a 12-mile backup, the Oklahoma Highway Patrol reported.
The breakdown, construction zone, rush hour and rain created a perfect storm for a miles-long jam between Stroud and Bristow, with the worst of it around mile marker 195, Trooper Betsy Randolph said.
The tractor-trailer broke down around 7:30 p.m. and had been cleared away within an hour.
Traffic remained heavy at 8:30 p.m.
“There's an accordion effect,” Randolph said. “It's stop and go.”
