The proposed concept for U.S. Route 177 (Perkins Road) was developed through a context-sensitive design approach to address the needs of multiple users of the corridor.
This is a joint project with the Oklahoma Department of Transportation (ODOT). The City is responsible for design, utility relocation and rights of ways acquisitions, and ODOT is responsible for construction.
Utility relocation is underway, and ROW is 95% secured.
Anticipated Date (Design): Design 90% complete
Anticipated Date (Construction): Construction is by ODOT and scheduled for bidding in FY2021
Anticipated Date (Completion): FY2022
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.
