The Oklahoma Department of Transportation (ODOT) is hosting a public open house to present the roundabout design for the US-62/SH-82 intersection south of Tahlequah. The meeting will show how the roundabout will work and explain the benefits. The meeting will also explain how traffic will move through the intersection during construction, which is anticipated to start in early 2023.

The purpose of the project is to improve safety and traffic flow at the US-62/SH-82 intersection. Currently, traffic experiences congestion and delay at the existing traffic signal. This is expected to worsen and become significant by 2040. There have been 25 documented collisions at the intersection since 2013. Seventy-two percent of these were rear-end collisions, which could suggest congestion is a contributing factor.

ODOT proposes to construct a 3-legged roundabout at the US-62/SH-82 intersection. Roundabouts are a common intersection type that have been shown to reduce traffic delays and improve safety. The project also includes a pavement overlay on US-62 from the SH-82 intersection north approximately 1.4 miles.
