Continuation and completion of the reconstruction and widening from I-35 at Oklahoma City to SH-66, east of Bristow, adding lanes, improving/adding interchanges and other safety features to include lights

OVERVIEW

The Turner Turnpike is a vital corridor that connects Oklahoma’s two metro areas.  Improving safety and convenience on this road is a priority for OTA. This reconstruction/safety project will occur between I-35 and SH-66, East of Bristow. These projects will create an “urban turnpike corridor” with lighting, wider lanes and additional lanes. It will allow for the future addition of truck-specific and high-occupancy vehicle (HOV) lanes for quick and safe access. The design package includes interchanges at Post Rd, SH-102, SH-18 in Chandler, N 3503 at Davenport, SH-99 in Stroud, S 481st at Depew, SH-16 and SH-48 at Bristow, and SH-66, East of Bristow.
