The Oklahoma Department of Transportation (ODOT), in cooperation with the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), is proposing replacement of the existing pavement section (including shoulders) and significant design changes to the Kickapoo Spur Interchange ramps. Please see the attached project location map. The purpose of the project is to reconstruct the pavement of US-270 to increase the longevity of the pavement and to improve the level of safety and operations throughout the corridor. The reconstruction of the pavement of US-270 is needed because the condition of the existing pavement has deteriorated to an unsatisfactory level and the current average daily traffic (ADT) is 16,240 vehicles per day and is projected to increase to 22,740 vehicles per day by 2040.
To improve safety and traffic flow, ODOT is developing design plans for improving this segment of US-270 while taking into consideration the cost of construction, right-of-way and utilities impacts, and environmental constraints. The project will reconstruct the pavement of US-270 from MacArthur Street south 2.1 miles to the Kickapoo Spur Interchange, extending 0.3 miles south to the bridges over the Union Pacific Railroad. The cable median barrier will be removed and reset in the central median. The Kickapoo Spur Interchange will be modified to a traditional diamond interchange by removing the two existing southbound on and off loop ramps and replacing them with modified taper-style ramps.
