The Oklahoma Department of Transportation (ODOT), in cooperation with the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) proposes to improve US-70 near Madill in Marshall County. A US-70 Feasibility Study done in 1997 identified the section of US-70 in Madill as a high priority project based on an evaluation of future travel demand, safety and congestion. The study concluded that the preferred alternative for improvement is an eastern realignment of US-70 in and around the City of Madill. The need for the project is to accommodate increasing traffic in the Madill area and to address the current geometric and capacity deficiencies on the existing roadway. The purpose of the project is to improve the efficiency and travel time of the US-70 corridor addressing both truck traffic and tourist traffic.
ODOT recently tasked a consultant to further study the eastern realignment alternative recommended in the feasibility study to improve US-70 while taking into consideration construction costs, right-of-way, and environmental constraints. The purpose of the meeting is to present the proposed alignment, and seek input from the public.
Additional information about the project and the upcoming meeting can be obtained from the following:
