Shawnee’s Heart of Oklahoma Exposition Center getting improvements

The Heart of Oklahoma Exposition Center is getting some attention, undergoing an overhaul of sorts, as some much-needed improvements are now being addressed.

Spectra’s head over the expo, General Manager Katy Fleming, said there are many items on the to-do list about to be underway, including a fence-removal and replacement project.

“The Heart of Oklahoma Expo Center is a hub for activities in this area and constantly growing,” she said. “We struggle with keeping the property secure, as well as the overall image.”

The project is a bit unique due to the different types of fencing and the clients using the fence area, she said.

Coming in under budget, RJ Fencing and Decks, of Wellston, was awarded a contract last week for the project, which was bid at $266,032.50.
