The Oklahoma Department of Transportation (ODOT), in cooperation with the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), proposes to make safety improvements to US-59 from approximately .025 mile south of SH-51 in Maryetta and extending north 5.25 miles in Adair County, Oklahoma. This segment of US-59 is a two-lane, open section, principal arterial facility with 12-footwide driving lanes and varying-width shoulders. There are two bridges and several roadway-sized drainage structures associated with this section of highway. Current traffic volumes are estimated at 10,000 vehicles per day (VPD) from the beginning of the project to one mile north of Maryetta, and 4,800 VPD to the end of the project. The purpose of the proposed improvements is to correct roadway deficiencies, enhance safety, and efficiently accommodate traffic.
ODOT is developing design plans for improving this segment of US-59 while taking into consideration the cost of construction, right-of-wayand utilities impacts, and environmental constraints. The proposed improvements include widening and resurfacing the highwayto create two, 12-footwide, paved shoulders on existing alignment. Some roadway sections will be curb and gutter, and some segments will have a dedicated passing lane. Turning lanes will be added at some intersections and at the PeavineSchool to accommodate high traffic counts. The existing bridges and structures will be widened.
The proposed design will meet current standards. Highway access would remain open during construction, and access to residences, businesses and schools would be maintained throughout the project duration.
