Description:

The Oklahoma Department of Transportation (ODOT), in cooperation with the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), is proposing reconstruction of SH-82 from south of Grand Avenue in Tahlequah, extending approximately 7 miles in total north and west to Gideon in Cherokee County. This segment of SH-82 has narrow shoulders, sharp curves and rolling terrain which result in inadequate sight distance to safely pass slow moving or turning vehicles. The purpose of the project is to improve safety and mobility in the SH-82 corridor, and to complete the 4-lane loop around Tahlequah.

ODOT presented the SH-82 project to the public on multiple occasions, beginning in 2013. An Environmental Assessment and Finding of No Significant Impact (EA/FONSI) for a preferred alternative were approved by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) in 2018. Since that time, ODOT has completed detailed environmental studies and advanced the design of the project on the preferred alternative.

In an effort to improve safety, ODOT has added roundabout intersections at three locations:

  • SH-82 and N. Grand Avenue
  • SH-82 and SH-51 Spur
  • W. Jones Road and N. Jarvis Rd.
