Designers narrowing options for extension of Goodyear Boulevard

The Lawton Constitution

By Kim McConnell November 19, 2020


A proposal to create a bypass for Lawton’s west industrial park will focus on an interchange system that would use ramps to link Goodyear Boulevard to Rogers Lane/U.S. 62.

The proposal is moving to its next design phase after members of the Lawton Metropolitan Planning Organization’s transportation technical and transportation policy committees agreed to help EST Engineering narrow the focus for a transportation system that will take industrial traffic off Lawton streets by linking Goodyear Boulevard to the existing U.S. 62 bypass onto Rogers Lane on Lawton’s west side. Now, Goodyear Boulevard — the industrial park’s major arterial — dead-ends into old Cache Road.

Oklahoma City design firm EST Engineering, already working on other arterial design projects in Lawton, met with the technical and policy committees last week for help in narrowing what had been six options for the industrial bypass to three, so engineers can continue their analysis and conceptual designs. The decision: options that use ramps/loops to keep traffic moving rather than those that would cause traffic to come to a complete stop before turning onto U.S. 62.
