Cutoff for boulevard comments is June 13
The Oklahoma Department of Transportation announced Thursday evening it is extending the public comment period for the downtown Oklahoma City boulevard designs until June 13. The announcement followed a request by Friends for a Better Boulevard to the agency and to the Federal Highway Administration. Transportation Department spokeswoman Brenda Perry issued a statement saying the decision to continue to accept comments longer than the two weeks that expired Wednesday was made after careful consideration of comments and questions received to date. Perry said the agency is working on additional information to be placed on the project website, www.okladot.state.ok.us, by May 30.
