Public input needed on planned SH-99 widening near Seminole
The Oklahoma Department of Transportation is hosting a virtual open house to provide updates and get public input on the proposed widening of SH-99 south of SH-59 near Seminole in Seminole County.
This two-phase project would widen SH-99 to four lanes with paved shoulders from just south of SH-59 West near Seminole about eight miles south to EW County Road 134 near Bowlegs, along with replacing the SH-99 bridge at the Little River. The proposed work would help improve safety and accommodate current and future traffic volumes. This project would address one of the four remaining segments of SH-99 corridor widening that has been ongoing since the early 1990s.
