With the bridge being out, residents were cut off from essential services.

Tuesday, a handful of contractors got assembled at the scene, and agreed to rebuild the bridge on Wednesday.

Normally, contractors say such a fix would cost at least $30,000. But the contractors are going to do it for free.

Brenda Rickman is one of the affected residents.

"Thank you Oklahoma. They're good people. You can't live in a better place," Rickman said.
