I don't know the time line of when the project is supposed to start. The local TV station in Lawton ran a story about the extension a few months ago. It wasn't long ago that the Southern end of the Duncan bypass (a new "Y" extension to US-81 farther South of Duncan) opened.

I posted some pics of it on another thread.  Nice that the extension is limited access but I got the feeling the roadbed was substandard.

Yeah, it's almost like a low cost "place holder" configuration. If or when the Duncan Bypass is improved into an actual 4 lane freeway with a second set of lanes, bridges, etc ODOT will likely have to put down something significantly better. On the bright side they got what I feel is the most important step out of the way: securing the right of way for any potential future freeway.

Not sure if it was posted here but the Calera US-69/75 upgrade has broken ground and should be in full swing or soon will be.
