Oklahoma City MAPS board approves sidewalks plan

City officials had said the cost estimate allowing for only 26 miles was perhaps overly conservative, so they expressed hopes Thursday that up to an additional 10 miles could be constructed with the existing budget.

“It's always just going to depend on how (expensive) the (construction) bids come back, obviously,” said city Public Works Director Eric Wenger.

The master planning document prioritizes more than 100 miles of sidewalk construction, so the city can start with the first project and keep going down the list until the money runs out. But the city council has discretion to change what the list looks like before its eventual adoption.

The Citizen Advisory Board also passed a resolution Thursday that urges the city council to find other ways to fund at least the full 70 miles of sidewalks marketed in the MAPS 3 campaign.
