Public invited to discuss future US-69 project in Calera
The Oklahoma Department of Transportation is hosting a public meeting Thursday, June 15 in Calera to present information and gather public input on a proposed project to improve US-69 from Chickasaw Rd. near Calera to the US-70 Bypass near Durant in Bryan County.
This project will help improve safety and efficiency for the significant freight traffic on the US-69/75 corridor by improving rail crossings and upgrading it to a controlled-access highway using on- and off-ramps and one way frontage roads. The existing highway segment has numerous access points, including three signalized intersections and a rail crossing, which create traffic congestion and safety concerns.
A brief presentation will be made on the proposed improvements with ODOT officials available to answer questions following. All project materials will be available online following the meeting at www.odot.org/publicmeetings.
