The Oklahoma Department of Transportation (ODOT), in cooperation with the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), is proposing improvements to the I-44 and US-75 interchange in the City of Tulsa, Tulsa County, Oklahoma. The current cloverleaf interchange at I-44 and US-75 is an outdated design that is no longer sufficient for today’s traffic volumes. With future traffic volumes projected to exceed 90,000 vehicles per day (vpd) on US-75 and 100,000 vpd on I-44, improvements are needed to increase mobility and reduce congestion. Existing collision rates on I-44 and US-75 in this area are over four times the state average for similar highways. Almost half of the collisions in the last 10 years were rear-end collisions, which can be attributed in part to congested conditions.
The purpose of the project is to accommodate existing and future growth and traffic demand, decrease congestion, and increase mobility. Improvements to the I-44 and US-75 interchange were initially studied in an Environmental Assessment (EA) for the US-75 Corridor from SH-67 (151st Street) to I-44, completed by ODOT in 2002. The EA evaluated widening of US-75 and reconstruction of the I-44 interchange with several direct connection flyover ramps. In 2017, ODOT completed a preliminary engineering study of the portion of I-44 from I-244 to the Arkansas River, which also included the I-44 and US-75 interchange. As part of the 2017 study, the design of the interchange was modified slightly from the 2002 EA to better accommodate new development in the area. The updated concept was presented at a public meeting in November 2017. The project was then divided into five Work Packages for final design and construction. Work Package 1 began construction in January of 2021.
