What We're Doing

The Oklahoma Department of Transportation (ODOT) is widening Perkins Road between McElroy Road and Lakeview Road. The widening project includes turn lanes, storm sewer improvements, sidewalks, and a retaining wall in some locations.

To accommodate construction of this road project, the City is responsible for relocating water lines in the area.

Anticipated Milestones

  • Anticipated Date (Design): Spring 2020
  • Anticipated Date (Construction): Spring 2020
  • Anticipated Date (Completion): Fall 2020

Benefits of the Project

The proposed concept includes:

  • Widening the road to provide turn lanes at key locations along US-177

  • Center median to reduce the frequency and severity of accidents.

  • A new, signalized intersection at the driveways for Lowe's and Buffalo Wild Wings. This signal will be between Redbud Drive and Krayler Avenue.

  • Pedestrian and bicycle improvements through a multi-use path along the west side of US-177 and sidewalk along the east side of US-177.

Budget & Funding

  • Year Funded: FY2020
  • Funding Source: Water Capital Fund
