Thread: US-75/I-44 Interchange

    Default Re: US-75/I-44 Interchange

    I still can't believe we are going to be looking at half constructed flyovers for several years before this thing is finished. I'm glad they started at least, but I have been waiting years for this and it's going to be at least 2026 before I can get from I44 to US75 smoothly. By that time I will almost certainly be living somewhere else anyway...

    Between the end of work package one and the start of packages 2 and 5 will be the 81st street interchange rebuild and widening. I hope a new infrastructure deal can bring in those dates some.

    Hopefully with a new infrastructure package it could be sped up. Does anyone know if the entire project is “shovel ready?”

    It should be, the design work is done.

    ODOT has submitted this project for a RAISE grant so hopefully it’ll get the money.

    Even if it were not, with such a long timeline any other projects ahead of it that benefit from an infrastructure package would likely speed up how quickly the normal budget dollars could be allocated to this.

    It looks like ODOT will get a chance to receive a loan to help expedite this project through a new program called INFRA extra that is giving certain 2019 applications a chance to receive up to 49 percent assistance.

    Not sure what part of the project this would fund but it would be nice to have the ultimate build out started before 2023.

    It looks like this project will be expedited and be fully underway by fall of 2023: https://www.krmg.com/news/local/work..._VF0i0RGnA879Q

    That's great! This is what we hoped would happen when they started the project like they did. They basically put things into motion not really knowing how long it would take to complete but hoping that having things started would bring in more funding - and it worked! Now we need to do the same thing for the I44/BA and the BA/169 interchanges.

    They've started work on 169 and I-44. I am trying to figure out what ramps will be flyover and which will be clovers. EB I-44 to NB 169 and WB I-44 to SB 169 should both at least be ramps

    This project adds just one flyover. EB I-44 to NB US-169

    Well dang. They still need to either braid the 21st St onramp and NB 169 to EB I-44. That's a nightmare for such a busy onramp.

    All of the ramps should be flyovers.

    Yeah that’d be great but it’d be best if they got US-169 and OK-51 since that junction is even more high traffic. Same with I44 and OK-51. I think they both have some work planned on thenm
