My main concern is a Grade Separation for The B.N.S.F. Rail Line, which the current alignment has a tunnel under it. This provides access to both Kingston and Madill with out needing to wait for trains to finish.

It is alarming to read about The Marshall County Bypass being very cheap. The Chickasha Bypass, The Stephens County Bypass, and of course The Unfinished Chickasaw Turnpike. ...

The current plans DO include a Grade Separation for the new alignment also: a bridge over B.N.S.F. Rail Line.

If they do not bypass Oakland, perhaps they shall upgrade the existing corridor. However, a bypass around Oakland would be much easier.

I agree about the Traffic in Murray County also. Time for U.S. 177 to be upgraded.

As of 1/16/23 OTA is actively installing a cable barrier on the southernmost 8 miles of OK-375. Traffic is down to one lane and a reduced speed limit.

They have finished the barrier on the 7 southernmost miles of the project as of yesterday. It looks like they only have about 3 more to go before this project is complete.

A project to add two ramps completing the diamond interchange at US-60 and Main St. in Durant is scheduled to start construction in 2025:

Looking at the map, the interchange in question is of a "super two" with the old alignment.  Wonder why they just don't double barrel the eastern part of that southern Durant bypass, while they're doing this?

Mods, just a suggestion, but maybe this thread should be merged with the pinned Oklahoma thread.

Anywho, US-70 over the Lake Texoma is slated to be replaced with construction starting in 2029.

I didn't thnk they had the funding all lined up for this. It won't be cheap.

They claim construction starts in 2029 so I’d assume they would have the funding but maybe it’ll be pushed back knowing ODOT.

You weren’t kidding. It will be in the hundreds of millions. Probably will warrant its own thread at some point. I’m throwing my support behind alt. 4 with the 4 lane new bridge and the old one converted to a bike/pedestrian bridge. 209 million for that one.

From the website:

Currently, ODOT is planning to begin Right-of-Way negotiations in 2025. Construction is currently programmed in 2029, but the project is not fully funded. Because of the high cost of the project, construction is dependent on ODOT identifying additional funding sources. (emphasis added)

I thought so.
