Traffic Talk: Crosstown Expressway 'adjustments' continue

Don Gammill: There still are some areas that require attention along Oklahoma City's newest highway, the Interstate 40 Crosstown Expressway

So you did good in calling this to their attention, Jerry, and you got a heads-up on what's ahead. Everybody wins.

By the way ...

I anticipated this question might be coming after the expansion work on the off-ramp to Waterloo Road from Interstate 35 the past couple of years. Honestly, I expected it to come sooner.

Does ODOT have any plans for a northern four lane divided highway loop up around Waterloo Road that would connect I-35 to (State) Highway 74?


There are no such plans at this time, Kevin.

And this one ...

I was just curious if you knew or could ask what they are doing on the Kilpatrick Turnpike from I-40 north. I see them putting a strip of asphalt on the inside lane in the median but cannot figure out what the purpose is.


Crews have been installing cable barriers, Kelly.

Enjoy your week and drive safely.
