LAWTON, Okla. (TNN) - The Oklahoma Department of Transportation’s 8-year plan to improve highways and bridges across the state has been approved. This 8-year work plan will cash out at about 560 million dollars once everything is all set and done. That includes over 100 projects that will bring upgrades to the area. “We’ve added a new project from Elgin to Sterling, we’ve added about 6.5 miles of improvements there, we’ve added the right of way and utilities, and hopefully we’ll have that construction in 2029. The road of State Highway 17 between Elgin and Sterling, we’re looking to add shoulders on that roadway. The traffic volume in that area has increased a lot in the recent years,” said ODOT District 7 Engineer Jay Earp. Those are two of three projects that will improve the Elgin area.
