CLAREMORE, Okla. — The Oklahoma Transportation Committee gave the Oklahoma Department of Transportation (ODOT) the green light to proceed with a $64 million dollar joint project with the Turnpike Authority to build another access point on the Will Rogers Turnpike at Flint Road. The new interchange will be built about 3 miles south of the current interchange off Highway 20 on the east side of Claremore, providing commuters with more access to the Will Rogers Turnpike. Work is expected to get underway in the spring of 2023 and the project could take up to three years to complete. “They’re going to replace the bridge that goes over the turnpike, and they’re also going to add a new interchange here on Flint Road,” said TJ Gerlach, a spokesperson for ODOT and the Turnpike Authority.
