ELK CITY — Oklahoma's first diverging diamond interchange is now open at the interchange between Interstate 40 and State Highway 6/Main Street in Elk City.

The configuration is designed to permit free-flowing left turns onto the interstate. Two phase traffic signals are installed at the roadway crossover points.
