Earlier this week, I noticed Craig, via Twitter, was urging the Oklahoma Turnpike Authority to make CNG part of its ongoing remodeling efforts at travel plazas around the state, so I asked him where he thinks fueling options should go. Here is his response.
In 2010, the Oklahoma legislature passed Resolution 74-78f to encourage development of CNG refueling stations:
“It shall be the goal to have at least one public CNG fueling station located approximately every one hundred (100) miles along the entire interstate highway system in the state by the year 2015. The goal shall increase to at least one public CNG fueling station approximately every fifty (50) miles by the year 2025.”
Now, a path to meeting that goal seems to be shaping up leveraging Oklahoma’s entrepreneurs and the Oklahoma Turnpike Authority (OTA).
OTA’s 5-year capital plan includes:
Purchase of 35 CNG powered vehicles per year starting in 2013
Toll Plaza remodels at Vinita on Will Rogers (2013), Walters on H.E Bailey (2014), Eufaula and Antlers on Indian Nation (2015), SH 99 on Cimarron (2016), and Stroud on Turner (2017)
