Kickapoo Turnpike



Construction Hotline: 1-888-312-2151

  • 21 miles

  • New construction

  • This project will allow for a connection from Eastern Oklahoma County to vital intersections for travel. This will produce a drive-time reduction to access Tulsa from the OKC Metro and a needed new loop to alleviate current congested traffic in the Oklahoma City area. Construction will link I-40 and I-44 (Turner Turnpike) in Eastern Oklahoma County.

  • As of January 5, 2021 at 11:00 am, the Kickapoo Turnpike is open.*

    *The roadway is single lane in both directions from NE 23rd Street south to I-40 while crews continue to work on the road. In addition, on/off ramps at Reno Ave. and NE 29th Street will remain closed. The northern half of the Kickapoo Turnpike opened to traffic on October 13, 2020 from I-44 (Turner Turnpike) to NE 23rd Street.
