The Turner is getting most of the love. 6 lane from Kellyville to OKC:

--- Quote ---The Turner Turnpike is a vital turnpike corridor that connects Oklahoma’s
two metro areas.  Improving safety and convenience on this road is a priority for the OTA. This reconstruction/safety project will occur between I-35 and Bristow. These projects will create an “urban turnpike corridor”  with lighting, wider lanes and the addition of lanes. It will allow for the future creation of truck-specific and HOV lanes for quick and safe access. Design package to include interchanges at Post Rd, SH-102, SH-18 in Chandler, N3503 at Davenport, SH-99 in Stroud, S 481st at Depew and SH-16 and
SH-48 at Bristow.

6 lane JKT from I40 to existing 6 lanes at MacArthur
Directional ramps at Lake Hefner Parkway (EB to SB and NB to WB)

Missed one. They will complete the Gilcrease in northwest Tulsa

--- Quote ---This project completes the western loop around the Tulsa metro area. The project connects from the northern terminus of the new Gilcrease Expressway West at Edison north and east to LL Tisdale Parkway. It will help relieve urban traffic congestion during peak periods. It will also provide a new and more direct route to city attractions and points of interest in the Tulsa urban core. This will bolster safe access to Tulsa along with economic growth and opportunity. Includes interchanges at Newton St, Apache St, N 41st W Ave, N Gilcrease Museum Rd, Osage Dr, LL Tisdale, MLK Blvd.
