    I don't think the traffic counts would warrant that, and there's probably no way to fit in the ramps and approach needed to reach a 16' bridge clearance since you have the railroad 300 feet to the west. Plus, you'd have to take ROW for the ramps and approach from the same properties the city deemed too expensive to take for connecting Oklahoma straight through.

    You are probably right. I was thinking more when the COOP site was developed but even then I wonder how much traffic that would generate.

    Yes, correct. Oklahoma Ave. traffic will route around to the new intersection (Compress Ave.) and the light will be there. Maybe I was misunderstanding what you meant... you're talking about the business access through the old intersection.
