CHUCK HARVEY – CEG CORRESPONDENT

Phase I of a major reconstruction project focused on safety, increased capacity and modernization is under way at the intersection of I-40 and Choctaw Road east of Oklahoma City. The cost of the project is not to exceed $75 million. Oklahoma Department of Transportation is overseeing the project.

Bridge removal and widening of I-40 are part of the work that includes the reconstruction of the Choctaw Road interchange. Workers will widen I-40 to six lanes plus auxiliary lanes between I-240 and Peebly Road.

An auxiliary lane, the extra lane constructed between on and off ramps, allows drivers a safe way to merge into traffic while also preventing bottlenecks caused by drivers attempting to enter or exit the freeway.

The interchange will be replaced with a full-diamond design. I-40 will be expanded from two lanes to three in each direction for a distance of 4.5 mi.

As part of the project, the level of the I-40 overpass above Choctaw and Peebly Roads also will be raised from 14 ft. to 18 ft. to accommodate large trucks. The park and ride at Choctaw Road also will be relocated and a cable barrier will be installed as the highway divider... FULL ARTICLE

I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the structure
of your blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 pictures.
Maybe you could space it out better?
