TULSA, Okla. — The Cherokee Nation and Oklahoma Department of Transportation are partnering to make safety improvements to an intersection on U.S. Highway 75 in Ochelata.

Cherokee Nation Principal Chief Bill John Baker and Cherokee Nation Department of Transportation Director Michael Lynn met with ODOT Executive Director Michael Patterson and ODOT Division Engineer Randle White on Wednesday in Tulsa to present the tribe’s contribution of $411,000 toward the $678,000 project.

Between 2012 and 2017, 37 collisions occurred at the US-75-W2900 Road intersection, including five that resulted in fatalities. The intersection improvement plan calls for the construction of “J-turns” in the corridor and a southbound deceleration lane on the highway to reduce the number of traffic conflict points and help improve safety.

“This intersection in Ochelata is an important route that provides direct access to Cherokee Nation’s Cooweescoowee Health Center, where tens of thousands of patients are seen each year,” said Principal Chief Bill John Baker. “Cherokee Nation is proud to work with the Oklahoma Department of Transportation to help prevent collisions and make this route safer for years to come. This is a great example of the strengths of a partnership between the Cherokee Nation and the state of Oklahoma.” FULL ARTICLE
