Officials Announce Plan for Launch of OTA’s Gilcrease Expressway Extension Project

News On 6 reports that officials held a news conference on March 10 to discuss the plan to complete the Gilcrease Expressway around Tulsa. “The route for the road was set in 1961, with the expectation the City could build it. The City got things started, but was still decades from finishing until the deal came together.”

As Sand Springs Leader reports, the Oklahoma Turnpike Authority is now set to manage the $240 million project, made possible by a partnership involving OTA, the City of Tulsa and the state, as part of the Driving Forward initiative.
