    You'll get half your wish since two of them will be flyovers

    Yeah, haha. Better to look at the glass half full I guess.

    So does this mean this project is being fast tracked and we don't have to wait until 2017 for work to start up again?

    I am curious if the delay of the start of the boulevard has anything to do with this.

    Well this is good news. The faster this interchange gets fixed, the better.

    What's the next ramp to start once they finish this one? The NB 235 to EB 44?

    i would guess so .. but after this one nothing is scheduled until 2017 (this one wasn't either until recently)

    Bill, are you sure? Was that how it was originally proposed to progress?

    Your guess on the federal and state budgets over the next five years is probably as good as anyone elses

    It's possible. It mostly depends on available funds and program balancing.

    and maybe change those two cloverleafs to fly-overs

    Man, you and I really, really want to see some Texas (or any other state) style interchanges here.

ID:	3431 The High-Five would be the sh**. I this cost around 250mil. It would be nice to see something similar to this. I doubt seeing it happen though. We also don't have the express toll ways that Dallas has going through the interchange.

    i think the main reason that we have to wait for these large projects to be built out is that we're not allowed to borrow money for road construction. we have a pay-as-you-go system.

    That is correct. We don't do it like Texas.

    Which tells me we're doing pretty dang well if we thought we weren't going to start the next phase until 2017 and it's only 2013!

  24. Default Re: I-235 / I-44 Interchange

    I would be really interested in seeing how much it would be to take out bonds + interest to get it done VS pay as you go with the natural rise of construction costs in 2017 and beyond. If that makes any sense.

  25. #250

    Default Re: I-235 / I-44 Interchange

    Is there really that much political animosity toward selling bonds at what are still incredibly low rates and getting our interchanges and highways up to snuff and then paying them off quickly?

    Edit: who am I kidding? It's Oklahoma...
