Description:

The Oklahoma Department of Transportation (ODOT), in cooperation with the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) is re-evaluating the environmental document for this segment of US-59 from the north end of Sailboat Bridge northwest to SH-125 in Delaware and Ottawa Counties. The purpose of the project was and still is to accommodate future traffic volumes. The current traffic on US-59 from Sailboat Bridge to Tomcat Corner (EW-250) is 12,900 vehicles per day (vpd) with a 2050 projected traffic of 21,910 vpd. The current traffic on US-59 from Tomcat Corner (EW-250) to SH-125 is 5,380 vehicles per day (vpd) with a 2050 projected traffic of 9,100 vpd.
The proposed improvement consists of providing four 12-foot wide driving lanes with a 14-foot wide center left turn lane and10-foot wide pedestrian/bicycle lanes outside of the curb and gutter system on both sides of the roadway for approximately 1.1 miles to the intersection of Tomcat Corner (EW-250 Road).
 
This proposed project is consistent with the original scope. From Tomcat Corner northwest approximately 1.9 miles to the junction with SH-125, the proposed improvement consists of providing two (2)12-foot wide driving lanes with 10-foot wide shoulders. Intersection improvements are proposed forUS-59 at Tomcat Corner, NS-580 and EW-240 as proposed in the original Environmental Assessment.
