OKLAHOMA CITY (Jan. 4, 2021) — The Oklahoma Turnpike Authority (OTA) will open the southern half of the new Kickapoo Turnpike at 11 a.m. Tuesday, January 5, 2021 that will connect two major interstates, I-40 to I-44 (Turner Turnpike).

The roadway will be single lane in both directions from NE 23rd Street south to I-40 while crews continue to work on the road. In addition, on/off ramps at Reno Ave. and NE 29th Street will remain closed. Currently, the Kickapoo Turnpike is open from I-44 (Turner Turnpike) to NE 23rd Street.

“Our number one priority has been to improve the safety and security of travelers,” Secretary of Transportation and OTA Executive Director Tim Gatz said. “This turnpike goes far and beyond laying concrete and installing traffic signs. It signifies a safe, convenient route to travel between Oklahoma’s two largest cities.”
