Kickapoo Turnpike opens for travel

Kickapoo Turnpike

This month, the northern portion of the Kickapoo Turnpike in Eastern Oklahoma County opened to Oklahoma travelers.

The ribbon cutting was celebrated on Tuesday, Oct. 13 with a virtual opening ceremony where attendees heard from Gov. Stitt and Kickapoo Chairman David Pacheco Jr. Prominent Oklahoma figures and football stars Barry Switzer and Pat Jones also made a fun appearance.

A project within the Driving Forward program under the Oklahoma Turnpike Authority, this 21-mile connection between I-40 and I-44/Turner Turnpike helps relieve some traffic congestion and improves travel from Oklahoma City and Tulsa, allowing Oklahomans to arrive safely to their destinations.
