The Oklahoma Department of Transportation is seeking public comments on plans to widen portions of State Highway 9 to four lanes in Cleveland and Pottawatomie Counties.
The current proposal calls for reconstructing State Highway 9 into a four-lane highway with a center turn lane and paved shoulders from 108th Avenue S.E. to 156th Avenue S.E. in Norman in Cleveland County. It also calls for making State Highway 9 a four-lane highway with paved shoulders from State Highway 102 to Tecumseh in Pottawatomie County.
