Purpose

The Oklahoma Department of Transportation (ODOT), in cooperation with the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), proposes to make safety improvements to SH-9 starting just east of the Kings Creek bridge outside of Whitefield and extending east 4 miles in Haskell County, OK. This segment of SH-9 is an open section minor arterial highway facility with two 12-foot-wide paved driving lanes and 3-foot-wide shoulders. Within the project area, there are angled intersections and drives, poor traffic flow, deteriorating pavement, narrow shoulders, and substandard sag curves. This stretch of SH-9 has one span bridge and five narrow reinforced concrete box (RCB) bridges listed on the National Bridge Inventory (NBIs #29187, #11605, #11607, #11934, #01301 & 11614). The 2023 traffic volume is 6,900 vehicles per day (vpd), which is projected to increase to 8,300 vpd by 2043.

Description

ODOT is developing design plans for improving this segment of SH-9 while taking into consideration the cost of construction, right-of-way and utilities impacts, and potential environmental concerns. The proposed improvements consist of symmetrically widening and reconstructing the roadway on existing alignment to create two 12-foot-wide driving lanes with 10-foot-wide paved shoulders. To improve traffic flow, an alternating 12-foot-wide passing lane with a 4-foot-wide shoulder will be added along a 2-mile segment of the corridor. Angled roads, driveways, and entrances will be realigned, and steep dips will be corrected to address limited site distances. The RCB bridges will be lengthened to create 44-foot-wide roadway clearances. The acquisition of new temporary or permanent right-of-way is anticipated, and the relocation of utilities is likely. The highway will remain open during construction.
