Public invited to get involved in I-35 corridor study in Moore and Norman
The Oklahoma Department of Transportation in partnership with the City of Moore and the City of Norman is hosting an open house meeting Thursday, April 27 to gather public input as part of a study of the I-35 corridor in Moore and Norman.
This corridor study will analyze I-35 from just north of N. 5th St. in Moore to just north of Main St. in Norman, including existing conditions, traffic movements, interchanges, on- and off-ramps and service roads. The information gathered during this corridor study will be used to plan future improvements to I-35.
The City of Moore is planning a project to construct a new S.W. 34th St. bridge over I-35 in Federal Fiscal Year 2017 and ODOT has a project to replace the Indian Hills Rd. bridge over I-35 scheduled in its Eight-year Construction Work Plan to go to bid in FFY 2022. Any additional proposed improvements to the corridor will be contingent on available funding in the future.
While no formal presentation is scheduled, members of the public are encouraged to come anytime during this open house meeting to learn about the corridor study and give their input on needs and proposed solutions. Handouts and comment forms will be made available online after the open house at www.odot.org/publicmeetings. Public comments will be accepted through May 26.
