OPEN HOUSE EXECUTIVE SUMMARY REPORT
The Oklahoma Department of Transportation (ODOT), in cooperation with the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), is proposing to improve the safety of SH-82 from the intersection of SH-82/SH-100 and extending east and north approximately 2.5 miles to just south of the Snake Creek bridge located in Sequoyah County. This section of SH-82 has two, 11-foot wide driving lanes with sharp curves, insufficient sight distances, unsafe intersections, a narrow bridge, several narrow drainage crossings, and no shoulders. These factors contribute to a high accident rate. The purpose of this project is to improve the safety of this segment of SH-82 with poor geometry.
As part of our efforts to keep the public informed and involved in the decision-making process, ODOT has scheduled a public open house. The purpose of the meeting is to present the alternatives being considered for the proposed improvements, and to obtain public input to aid in selecting a preferred alternative.
Additional information about the project and the upcoming meeting can be obtained from the following:
