[ About Oklahoma Roads ]

Oklahoma is the Crossroads of America. Unfortunately we rank near the top nationally in deficient bridges and more 25% of our state highways need critical repairs. The Crossroads are crumbling.

A cornerstone of good state government is providing safe and adequate transportation. In Oklahoma, we have achieved solid progress since 2006 by increasing state funds for transportation by over $700 million, however the state still has over $10 billion in backlogged repairs needed to rehabilitate our transportation infrastructure.

Without better roads and bridges, Oklahoma’s commerce and economic development will be stifled. There will be limited access in rural communities to emergency responders, an increased loss of life and a poor state image. Additionally, we will saddle future generations with an ever-growing tax burden to fund repairs that grow more costly the longer we delay.

To change this TRUST was formed in 2005 to improve Oklahoma’s roads and bridges through legislative and grassroots advocacy, education and public relations campaigns. We are united toward one objective - to create a permanent paradigm shift in Oklahoma state government that holds transportation as the leading priority. Learn about our plan to restore Oklahoma with TRUST.
