There is a huge amount of truck traffic on that corridor. At least these upgrades in Calera and McAlester will be relatively painless. There's next to nothing in terms of property to buy and demolish to make room for the new road. Frontage roads already run alongside those segments.

Maybe if we unsuspended the exploration tax that previously financed this state, even at their low rate.  Not like oil companies are going to move away from reserves larger than Saudi Arabia, and no reason we shouldn't be using this state's third largest natural asset (after sun and wind), when it's going to get pumped out anyway, to work for us.

But, knowing how this state's legislature does math, they'll just keep trying that budget cut idea, even though all that's done is leave the state neglected and 49th in everything.  Because in GOP math, zero revenue + nothing left to cut - everything's worn out = corporate profits + GOP math = infallable

Even if the State were flush with cash, the political powers-that-be in SE Oklahoma would never allow the remaining podunks south of McAlester to be bypassed.

No reason to bother anyway.  Pretty much going to take Texas successfully leaving the US to change that (in which, pretty much all of Dallas' population is taking over Durant).

New left lane passing only signs are coming in 2017.

--- Quote ---At its Tuesday, Sept. 6 meeting, the Oklahoma Transportation Commission approved a planned Oklahoma Department of Transportation project to place signs on I-35 and I-40 statewide to encourage motorists to use the right lane and not impede left lane traffic. The project to install these signs will use federal funds and is expected to go to bid in early 2017.
