Muskogee Phoenix By Ronn Rowland January 8, 2021
The Oklahoma Department of Transportation announced that it has extended the deadline for the public to comment on the proposed improvements to a segment of U.S. 69 in Muskogee.
ODOT is hosting a virtual open house to provide information on the three proposals to improve traffic flow and safety along the existing alignment, which is a primary commuter and truck route. The public can visit www.odot.org/US69Muskogee to view the proposed designs and provide comments through Jan. 18.
Muskogee Mayor Marlon Coleman said he feels it's important for citizens to voice their opinions as to the choices available for consideration.
"My responsibility at this point is to make certain that the information that ODOT put on the web site is actually getting out to the residents," he said. "Because ODOT sets the timeline for the responses. Once they post the site for the open house, it really is incumbent on us to be certain that everybody participates, because we want people to understand the importance of giving us the (U.S.) Highway 69 that we deserve to have."
