Transportation Commission Approves New ODOT 8-Year Work Plan


Public Radio Tulsa By MATT TROTTER December 7, 2020


The Oklahoma Transportation Commission on Monday gave the green light to the state transportation department’s latest eight-year construction plan. The work plan covers federal fiscal years 2021 through 2028. "That plan has over $6 billion and more than 1,300 critical highway and bridge improvement projects included," said Oklahoma Secretary of Transportation and ODOT Executive Director Tim Gatz. The new eight-year plan adjusts some project timelines to deal with an upcoming cut in state funding made to help balance the state budget. "This is a year when we had some extreme budgetary challenges to deal with. We’ll continue to work with the governor and the legislature to try to make sure that we continue making transportation an investment priority for the state of Oklahoma," Gatz said.
