The new plan sucks. Major projects like the I-35/I-240 Interchange and the I-35/Waterloo Interchange that were schedule to be let in 2023 are now pushed back to 2025. Major bummer.

Holy crap, it is on the plan for 2024 and the last plan didn't have it at all. The state moved back the US-75 81st St exit widening to 2025. I think the 141st exit took its place. Both are a mess, but 141st is worse.

There is some I-?? construction in the plan. Several interchanges are going to be built along US 412 in Rogers County, including "operational improvements" to the I-44/OK 66 interchange in Catoosa, interchanges at 4170 Rd, OK 412P, 265th St, 4190 Rd and 4240 Rd. A bridge is being built to carry 289th over the future Interstate. In Mayes County, the US 412/OK 412B intersection is getting "intersection modifications". Hopefully it is some sort of interchange or split. This stretch of highway is the longest non-freeway section of Future I-?? in Oklahoma.

For awhile ODOT really seemed to be doing a great job of keeping their project pages updated. Theyíd post upcoming commission meetings on their press releases and post summaries after they concluded. They added new major project pages, Legislative work source page that theyíd have monthly updates on each project. They also added a GIS map of nearly every active project going on. I was really impressed.

That lasted for about 4 years or so. Projects on the Legislative resource center page havenít been updated for years(again whereas before it was updated monthly). Major project pages havenít been updated in years. They stopped posting commission meeting summaries. They still list active construction sites that donít seem to have any activity though I could forgive one given there could be work going on where you canít see.

Still theyíve just completely neglected keeping the public informed on updates with current projects. They used to have a map showing all of the upcoming 8yr plan projects and they didnít make one this year just a list.

This almost seems to coincide with the de facto merger of the OTA into ODOT with Tim Gatz leading both. I donít know if thatís why but it is a shame to see.

I believe the degradation began when OMES took over all IT functions.
