What We're Doing

The proposed concept for U.S. Route 177 (Perkins Road) was developed through a context-sensitive design approach to address the needs of multiple users of the corridor.

This is a joint project with the Oklahoma Department of Transportation (ODOT). The City is responsible for design, utility relocation and rights of ways acquisitions, and ODOT is responsible for construction.

Anticipated Milestones

  • Utility relocation is underway, and ROW is 99% secured.

  • Anticipated Date (Design): Design 100% complete

  • Anticipated Date (Construction): Construction is by ODOT and scheduled for bidding in FY2021

  • Anticipated Date (Completion): FY2022

Benefits of the Project

The proposed concept includes:

  • Widening the road to provide turn lanes at key locations along US-177

  • Center median to reduce the frequency and severity of accidents.

  • A new, signalized intersection at the driveways for Lowe's and Buffalo Wild Wings. This signal will be between Redbud Drive and Krayler Avenue.

  • Pedestrian and bicycle improvements through a multi-use path along the west side of US-177 and sidewalk along the east side of US-177.
