ODOT Approves Tulsa Projects

Tulsa, OK – The Oklahoma Department of Transportation okays the second phase of the I-44 widening project in Tulsa. The $65-million contract is part of the two year project to widen the roadway between Yale Avenue and the Arkansas River. O-Dot's Kenna Mitchell tells KWGS News the work should begin after the first on the year.

In other transportation news, the department was cleared to start work on widening Highway 169 from I-244 north to 56th Street North. Rather than purchase additional right-of-way, the project calls for narrowing the median.
