    Exciting stuff! It seems OkDOT has increased their standards as this seems like a nicely designed freeway. I love it.

    It is exciting! It's much needed and long overdue. In 2015, the annual average daily traffic count here was 28,100. In comparison, the count on I-35 at WinStar was 30,800.

    The Boulder Motel, as mentioned above, now has been demolished. It's still unknown what specifically will be built in it's place.

    A new arts district is in the works along South 9th Ave in south Durant. "The idea is coming to life thanks to a $75,000 grant; $50,000 from the National Endowment of the Arts and a $25,000 match from several donors like the Choctaw Nation and Commercial Metal Company." The city will also "be kicking in about $6,000." "Most of this grant money will go toward paying architects to design the S9A."

    Does the state get anything of significance, taxwise, from the casinos since they are on Indian land?

    If a person wins over $1,199.00 on a single bet, they pay state income tax on it, less any accumulated losses.

    If Durant wins, it will be a departure from the kind of towns that previously won. They were towns experiencing population declines, while Durant is one of the few towns outside Oklahoma metros that have been adding on people.

    They just expanded not too long ago! Geeze... they must be raking in the dough. Makes sense considering the handful of times I've been there I gave them all my money!
    The truth is never embarrassed by honest inquiry.
