Federal Reclamations to help Turnpike

by The 100 Companies

The U.S. Bureau of Reclamations announced it will work with the Oklahoma Turnpike Authority on expanding the turnpike around Norman. The Bureau owns the land surrounding Lake Thunderbird where a preliminary route is planned in 15 years.

“This is the planning process as it should be. We gather information and make adjustments,” said OTA Deputy Director Joe Echelle.

Since it is a 15-year long-range plan, there is time for shifts in the route. OTA stated it considers the least impactful route, relating to homes and environment. Currently, 200 homes could be impacted by the proposed turnpike in 15 years.
