The Oklahoma Department of Transportation (ODOT), in cooperation with the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), is proposing improvements to the intersection of SH-51 and E. 91st Street/E. Washington Street in Wagoner County. The purpose of this project is to improve safety and traffic flow at the intersection. Currently, E. 91st Street and E. Washington Street intersect SH-51 approximately 100 feet apart, creating two offset "T" intersections. SH-51 is a 5-lane highway with two lanes in each direction and a center two-way left turn lane. Existing traffic volumes on SH-51 are 28,800 vehicles per day (vpd), with a projected 2045 traffic volume of 43,200 vpd. The posted speed limit is 55 miles per hour. The large volume of high-speed traffic creates a lack of gaps in traffic for turning vehicles. The existing offset intersection configuration creates overlapping turning movements and increases the potential for collisions.
To improve safety and traffic flow, ODOT is proposing to realign the two offset intersections into a single intersection with a traffic signal. Dedicated left turn lanes with deceleration distance will be provided in both directions on SH-51 and a right turn lane will be provided for westbound traffic on E. 91st Street. Minor additional right-of-way will be required. All roadways will remain open during construction.
