CATHY SPAULDING/Muskogee Phoenix
Tony Garcia of Easky Construction hoses a gravel base on Monday afternoon to make it easier to lay concrete. Fifth Street has been closed between Broadway and Okmulgee Avenue, in front of the United States Courthouse. According to city of Muskogee records, the General Services Administration sought to close the street to increase security and create a more park-like setting. The street remains open for pedestrian use.
