ODOT Looking for Citizen Input on New Bridge Project in Tulsa

Posted: Updated:

The Oklahoma Department of Transportation wants your input on the I-244 eastbound pedestrian bridge.

The current proposal shows a pedestrian bridge that would run the length of the entire eastbound bridge over I-244.

A revised proposal would replace the pedestrian bridge with a viewing platform on the north side of the bridge, giving a scenic view of the Route 66 Memorial Bridge and the future Route 66 history center.

The revised proposal would also connect the viewing platform to a trail to the pedestrian/bicycle facility on the westbound I-244 bridge, which is currently under construction.

The public is invited to submit comments and concerts by November 13th.

You can write in to the Environmental Programs Division Engineer
200 N. E. 21st St.
Oklahoma City, OK 73105

Or you can email comments to  environment@odot.org
