ODOT reveals top 2017 road projects
 
02:44
CINCINNATI (WKRC) - Local 12 News got a first look Thursday afternoon, March 30, at the major road projects coming this construction season. Orange barrels were already popping up around southwest Ohio as the 2017 construction season starts. Some new projects were on the drawing board, like a full interchange at I-71 and Western Row Road. Others were nearing completion. For years, there was only a northbound exit ramp to Western Row Road. Prep work was already underway on making that a full interchange. Southbound ramps to and from Western Row will give drivers another option in and out of Kings Island. Despite opposition from neighbors, plans were underway to complete Innovation Way, which will cut right through Kingswood Park in Deerfield Township. While dog walkers may not be happy, it will make for easier access to businesses. In Hamilton County, work was winding down on the $31 million Lytle Tunnel project. It should be completed by June 2017. Also on I-71 was the new Martin Luther King Jr interchange; also in the home stretch. The new MLK interchange will have a huge impact and should be completed by August or September 2017. Other projects wrapping up were the I-75 Hopple Project at the end of June. But then work will begin on I-75 through the G.E. corridor. That will start in May 2017, and be more than a three-year project. In southwest Ohio there will be 124 active projects totaling $457 million.

ODOT Commission Meeting- September 10, 2018
 
40:35
Highlights of the Oklahoma Transportation Commission’s meeting Monday, Sept. 10, included approval of the Oklahoma Department of Transportation’s annually-rebalanced Eight-Year Construction Work Plan and its Asset Preservation Plan; adoption of the updated County Improvements for Roads and Bridges plan and introduction of the newest member of the Commission. Also announced were the unveiling of two new public charging stations for electric vehicles, the department's support of the #justdriveok teen anti-texting campaign and contracts awarded for projects including bridge rehabilitations on both I-44 in Oklahoma City and on I-35 near Paoli. The commission voted unanimously to approve ODOT’s Eight-Year Construction Work Plan for Federal Fiscal Years 2019-2026, which contains nearly $6.5 billion in planned work on state bridges and highways during the next eight years. The plan prioritizes critically needed highway projects and is updated each year based on projections of available state and federal funding. This year's plan includes 1,386 projects, construction of more than 720 miles of shoulders or other improvements to two-lane highways and 686 highway bridge replacements or major rehabilitations. “I don’t think we would be as far along on structurally deficient bridges had it not been for an Eight-Year Construction Work Plan to keep us focused," said ODOT Executive Director and Transportation Secretary Mike Patterson. The number of structurally deficient bridges on the state highway system has been reduced from an all-time high of 1,168 in 2004 to 168 today, and those are expected to be programmed for replacement or rehabilitation within the next two years. However, now that the goal of removing all structurally deficient bridges is in sight, greater emphasis will be on highway pavement maintenance and reconstruction. The $473 million Asset Preservation Plan for State Fiscal Years 2019-2022 is a companion to the Eight-Year Construction Work Plan and focuses on preventive maintenance projects designed to extend the life of highway infrastructure. The plan features nearly 400 projects and includes 44 projects to improve highways to Americans with Disabilities Act standards by constructing curb ramps, sidewalks and crosswalks and installing traffic signal push buttons for pedestrians. Also approved was the County Improvements for Roads and Bridges Construction Work Plan for Fiscal Years 2019-2023. The latest plan calls for $877 million in improvements, most of the bridge projects will be replacements and nearly 40 projects use recycled bridge beams from the I-40 Crosstown project in Oklahoma City. The CIRB enables county commissioners to develop and schedule projects to improve roads and bridges on their system and is the one county program for which ODOT has oversight responsibility on construction contracts. During the regular monthly meeting, Patterson introduced District 8 Commissioner Robert A. “Bob” Peterson of Tulsa. Peterson will represent the northeastern part of the state and replaces Peter Regan, who resigned in August. Peterson is chairman and chief executive officer of Melton Truck Lines, a long-haul flatbed trucking company headquartered in Tulsa. Transportation Commissioners were also briefed on the newly installed, public electric vehicle charging stations in the visitor parking lot at ODOT’s main office in Oklahoma City. The department is the first state agency to have installed such stations in the State Capitol Complex for public and private use. In addition, Patterson announced the department will be continuing its emphasis on work zone awareness by partnering with the Oklahoma Insurance Department, Oklahoma Turnpike Authority and Oklahoma Highway Safety Office for the #justdriveok campaign this fall that asks Oklahoma teens to take the pledge online to not text and drive. The Commission voted to award a $6 million bank stabilization and bridge rehabilitation project on the eastbound and westbound I-44 mainline bridges over Deep Fork Creek between I-235 and Western Ave. in Oklahoma City along with two contracts in Garvin County: A $2.2 million bridge rehabilitation on I-35 over Short Creek near Paoli and a nearly $7 million bridge replacement on US-77 near Pauls Valley. Commissioners voted to award 14 contracts totaling more than $25 million to improve highways, roads and bridges in 10 counties. Contracts were awarded for projects in Beckham, Cleveland, Ellis, Garvin, McCurtain, Mayes, Oklahoma, Seminole, Tulsa and Wagoner counties. A list of all awarded contracts may be found by visiting odot.org/contracts, selecting the August 2018 letting and clicking Go and then Award.

Central Avenue Interchange Project Update
 
03:26
For more information on this project or to sign up for the email updates visit: http://www.dot.state.oh.us/districts/... Thanks for watching our project update on Central Avenue at I-475. I'm Theresa Pollick for the Ohio Department of Transportation. Start with a recap of work since August of 2015, mainline traffic has been impacted on the shoulders with nighttime lane restrictions on I-475. We've also had some work done on the inside lanes of I-475. The noise wall foundations have been installed and traffic has now been put on the temporary ramps. Embankment work on the new bridge is underway, and now the work will begin on the new bridge. Although a lot of the work has been able to be performed in the nighttime, this year will have the biggest impact to traffic. Central Avenue between McCord Road and Holland Sylvania will be reduced to one lane in each direction. At least one access drive will be maintained to local businesses at all time, and turn lanes will be provided to ease traffic flow. Here is a map view of the impacted area on Central Avenue. These will be the lane restrictions from McCord Road to Holland Sylvania. With the new bridge being built, there will have to be some interchange ramp closures, however, these will be relatively short and occur sometime in September of 2016. We're looking at a five-day closure of the ramps from Central Avenue to and from northbound I-475, and a nine-day closure of the Central Avenue ramps to and from southbound I-475. These will be announced. Good news is the final lane configuration on Central Avenue and the new ramps will be open and traffic will be on the newly built bridge by the end of 2016. There will be some nighttime intermittent lane restrictions possible on I-475 and Central Avenue through September 2017, but the significant impact to traffic will end by the end of this construction year. There will be work going on adjacent to the project. First of all, we have the I-475/US 23 safety project beginning to wrap up by July of this year, but we also have resurfacing projects going on on I-475. East of the area, I-475 from US 23 to Douglas and also south of the Central Avenue project, I-475 from US 24 to Dorr Street. These should have minimal impact to traffic as the resurfacing will take place during the nighttime. There will also be a resurfacing project on Central Avenue from Centennial Road to the Lucas/Fulton County line. This map provides an overview of the entire project. As you can see, I-475 is being widened from approximately Dorr Street to US 23. And of course you have the mainline work, which is taking place on Central Avenue with the new interchange being built. And on top of the bridge will be northwest Ohio's first single point urban interchange. This traffic layout allows for all traffic to be controlled with just three signal phases, as you can see in the diagram [above]. This map shows a view of Central Avenue east of I-475 in its final configuration. And here's a view of what Central Avenue west of I-475 will look like once the project is completed. You can stay informed of all the lane restrictions and closures involved on the Central Avenue project. All you have to do is sign up on the District Two website. More information is provided on the link [above].

I-64 & I-264 Interchange Improvements - Clearing
 
02:27
Ground breaking was November 16, 2016. The plan is to widen 64 west to 264 and add two new ramps — one called a flyover, where drivers can go right from 64 west onto 264 east. The other will direct drivers to the Newtown Road interchange. Phase one will cost $160 million and will take about two years. Phase two, which will improve conditions near Witchduck Road and Greenwich Road, has yet to begin.

ODOT Commission Meeting, November 7, 2016
 
19:38
November Commission Wrap-Up: County road and bridge plan approved, ODOT’s progress on rail improvements noted, $71.7 million in contracts awarded Highlights of the Oklahoma Transportation Commission’s Monday, Nov. 7 meeting include a report on the Oklahoma Department of Transportation’s bridge inspections following a Payne County earthquake, approval of the updated plan of major county projects and an update on ODOT’s rail crossing improvement initiative. Contracts were awarded for a project on the I-44 Belle Isle Bridge, bridge rehabilitation on I-44 and I-40 in Oklahoma County, traffic signal improvements in Cleveland County and US-270 in Dewey County. Executive Director Mike Patterson reported on ODOT’s response to Sunday night’s 5.0 magnitude earthquake near Cushing. Crews conducted visual inspections of 110 highway bridges within a 30-mile radius of the earthquake’s epicenter and also assisted with inspection of City of Cushing bridges. While minor damage to city utilities impacted SH-18 traffic in Cushing, no damage to any bridges was found. The commission approved the State Fiscal Year 2017-2021 County Improvements for Roads and Bridges work plan, which contains more than $933 million in dedicated federal, state, local and tribal funds for major county road and bridge construction projects administered by ODOT. The plan addresses 439 county bridges and nearly 800 miles of county roads with major reconstruction or rehabilitation. Of the bridges, 325 are either rated structurally deficient or functionally obsolete. A list of projects in the five-year CIRB plan can be found online at www.odot.org under What’s New, ODOT Publications. “Since it began 10 years ago, the CIRB program has been a great partnership between the state and the counties because it addresses the major projects that no single county would have the resources to undertake,” Patterson said. “We also greatly appreciate the involvement of Oklahoma’s tribal governments, who continue to be very engaged on county roads just like they are on highway projects.” Patterson also updated the commission on the agency’s ongoing effort to improve hundreds of rail crossings statewide using a combination of state and federal funds and proceeds from the 2014 sale of state-owned rail line. In fall 2015, ODOT announced a list of about 300 rail crossings statewide that would be improved within a three-year timeframe. To date, $48 million has been dedicated to improve 165 rail crossings on highways, city streets and county roads. The commission voted to awarded a nearly $3.8 million contract for a preventative maintenance project to seal the expansion joints on the I-44 Belle Isle bridge in Oklahoma City. This project will help preserve the bridge by keeping salt and water from corroding the structural steel and concrete below as ODOT continues a long-range study of options for future removal of the bridge. Commissioners approved a contract for rehabilitation of the N.W. 12th St., N.W. 23rd St. and N.W. 36th St. bridges over I-44 near the State Fairgrounds in Oklahoma City in addition to the Scott St. bridge over I-40 in Del City. Several bridges over I-44 in the area are currently being rehabilitated as part of a separate project. They also awarded several contracts for traffic signal improvements in Norman using federal funds and a more than $6 million contract to reconstruct and widen nearly four miles of US-270 near Seiling in Dewey County as part of the ongoing effort to expand the corridor to four lanes south of Woodward. In all, commissioners awarded 41 contracts totaling $71.7 million to improve bridges, highways, interstates and roads in 25 counties. Contracts were awarded for projects in Alfalfa, Bryan, Love, Cherokee, Cimarron, Cleveland, Craig, Creek, Dewey, Ellis, Greer, Harper, Johnston, Kay, Lincoln, Muskogee, Noble, Oklahoma, Ottawa, Osage, Rogers, Sequoyah, Texas, Tulsa and Wagoner counties. A list of all awarded contracts can be found by visiting www.odot.org/contracts, selecting the October letting and clicking Go and then Award. The eight-member panel, appointed by the governor to oversee the state’s transportation development, awards project contracts for road and bridge construction every month. The next regular meeting is scheduled for 11 a.m. Monday, Dec. 5. Contracts, bid information, the commission’s monthly agenda and project details may be viewed at www.odot.org.

ODOT Commission Meeting- October 2, 2017
 
44:28
October Commission Wrap-Up: Major I-40 interchange and widening in eastern Oklahoma County moves forward, Eight-year Plan adopted, $118 million in contracts awarded Highlights of the Oklahoma Transportation Commission’s Monday, Oct. 2 meeting include approval of the Oklahoma Department of Transportation’s rebalanced Eight-year Construction Work Plan, a report on the impacts of state funding cuts on planned projects, award of a major project on I-40 at Choctaw Rd. in Oklahoma County and action on placement of signs for memorial highways and bridges designated by the legislature. The commission voted unanimously to approve ODOT’s Eight-year Plan for Federal Fiscal Years 2018-2025. Due to $840 million in cumulative state funding reductions in the last seven years, ODOT delayed projects and even removed projects from the plan for the first time since the plan’s inception in 2003. Overall, 40 construction projects totaling more than $204 million were removed from the updated Eight-year Plan and about 42 percent of all programmed projects are being delayed one or more years. Additionally, several projects have been significantly reduced in scope in order to stretch funding as far as possible. The Asset Preservation Plan for State Fiscal Years 2018-2021 was also presented as a companion to the Eight-year Plan. The plan contains preventative maintenance projects designed to extend the life of highways and bridges. Executive Director Mike Patterson noted that since 2003, ODOT’s Eight-year Plan has been very successful in reducing the number of structurally deficient highway bridges, rebuilding much of the interstate system and addressing major urban interchanges and highway corridors without political influence on project selection. However, he noted that the updated plan lacks the resources to adequately address other pressing needs, including pavement conditions and lack of paved shoulders on rural highways. Even with the progress made on structurally deficient bridges, Patterson said that ODOT still needs to replace or rehabilitate about 90 bridges each year just to keep up with the aging infrastructure system. The commission voted to award a contract for an up to $75 million project to reconstruct I-40 at Choctaw Rd. to a full diamond interchange and widen I-40 to six lanes from I-240 to Peebly Rd. in eastern Oklahoma County. Work is expected to begin early next year and take more than two years to complete. This is one of several planned projects to reconstruct and widen the interstate to six lanes between I-240 and Shawnee, improving pavement conditions and addressing growing congestion and truck traffic. Commissioners took action on a consent docket item approving memorial sign placements at several locations designated by the legislature earlier this year, including the “Representative David Brumbaugh Memorial Bridge” on SH-51 (Broken Arrow Expressway) in Tulsa County and the “Officer Justin Terney Memorial Highway” on US-177 in Pottawatomie County. The commission also awarded a nearly $3 million contract for rehabilitation of the US-75 bridge over I-44, Southwest Blvd. and railroad in Tulsa and a more than $13 million contract to reconstruct SH-58 in Carnegie in Caddo County. Commissioners voted to award 22 contracts totaling more than $118 million to improve highways, roads and bridges in 19 counties. Contracts were awarded for projects in Adair, Atoka, Blaine, Caddo, Cimarron, Coal, Comanche, Craig, Garvin, Kay, Muskogee, Oklahoma, Osage, Pittsburg, Pottawatomie, Sequoyah, Tillman, Tulsa and Washita counties. A list of all awarded contracts may be found by visiting www.odot.org/contracts, selecting the September 2017 letting and clicking Go and then Award. The eight-member panel, appointed by the governor to oversee the state’s transportation development, awards project contracts for road and bridge construction every month.

Transportation officials announce plans for Brent Spence Bridge project
 
02:15
CINCINNATI (WKRC) – It’s one of the most heavily traveled bridges in the country. Nearly 200,000 vehicles make their way back and forth across the Brent Spence Bridge each day. Now, the already congested stretch is about to become more of a headache for drivers. Construction to repair the bridge will begin on Friday, June 23 and last for 60 days. Transportation officials disclosed plenty of details about the three-phase maintenance project at a news conference on Monday but offered virtually no details on how long commuters will be waiting on 75 and 71 on both sides of the bridge for the next 60 days. Two lanes will be closed at all times. The closures will move from east to west in three phases, with the bridge becoming a serious choke point during this project. Also, some ramps will be closed, including Ft. Washington Way to southbound 75, Third Street to southbound 71/75, Fourth Street northbound on ramp to 71/75, and the southbound ramp to KY 236, which is Donaldson Road in Erlanger. Those ramps will close at 9 pm on Friday, June 23 and will remain closed for the next 60 days. Bob Yeager of the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet encouraged drivers to avoid the bridge if at all possible during Monday's press conference. "If you can avoid traveling across the bridge, you should do so," Yeager said. "If you cannot avoid traveling across the bridge, you should know what lane you are to be in."

ODOT Commission Meeting  December 3, 2018
 
36:07
Highlights of the Oklahoma Transportation Commission’s Monday, Dec. 3, meeting included commission approval of the single largest contract for highway work in Oklahoma Department of Transportation history, acceptance of an award for an ODOT bridge project in northeastern Oklahoma, updates on federal transportation funding and ODOT’s completion of federal certification to oversee safety of rail transit systems. The commission awarded several construction contracts, including a contract for a city street project on Britton Rd. in The Village. The commission voted to award the single largest construction contract in ODOT history for the next phase of work on the I-235 corridor in Oklahoma City. The up to $105 million project will complete the widening of I-235 from north of N. 50th St. to N.W. 63rd St. and reconstruct the junction of I-235 and I-44 to a multi-level interchange with flyover ramps. This is one of the state’s busiest interchanges, with about 200,000 vehicles navigating the area each day. Transportation commissioners joined ODOT senior staff in celebrating the Tulsa-based Division Eight as they were honored with the Pharaoh Award from the Association of Oklahoma General Contractors. The award recognizes ODOT’s Claremore Residency and contractor Jensen Construction of Sand Springs, for a recent project to rehabilitate the eastbound US-412 bridge over the Verdigris River in Rogers County. The $15 million project replaced the eastbound bridge deck and beams in addition to other substructure repairs. The Pharaoh Award is presented each year for the highest quality bridge structure in Oklahoma and is a tribute to the Pharaoh family of Henryetta, one of the state’s pioneers in bridge construction. Executive Director Mike Patterson briefed the commission on the current continuing resolution authorizing federal funding, which expires Friday, Dec. 7. Patterson told commissioners that he expects the U.S. Congress and President Donald Trump to take action on another short-term funding reauthorization by the Friday deadline, again avoiding a preferred long-term solution but still preserving federal funding for transportation projects. Patterson also highlighted ODOT’s recent certification by the Federal Transit Administration to provide safety oversight of fixed guideway rail transit systems, which includes the Oklahoma City Streetcar. The department was required to create an oversight program to meet federal requirements for safety and security of such transit systems. Oklahoma was one of the first states to receive this certification from the FTA, which is necessary for the upcoming launch of the new streetcar service operated by the City of Oklahoma City and ensures that Oklahoma will continue to receive federal funding for public transit operations statewide. The commission awarded contracts for a nearly $26 million project to reconstruct three miles of US-59 near Watts in Adair County, a nearly $17.6 million project to reconstruct eight miles of SH-53 near Springer in Carter County and a more than $12 million project to reconstruct nearly four miles of US-270/US-183 in Woodward County. Also awarded was a nearly $4 million contract to reconstruct one mile of Britton Rd. in The Village using federal and local funds. Altogether, commissioners voted to award 32 contracts totaling more than $194 million to improve highways, roads and bridges in 24 counties. Contracts were awarded for projects in Adair, Beaver, Beckham, Bryan, Canadian, Carter, Choctaw, Coal, Custer, Garfield, Garvin, Grady, Haskell, Jackson, Love, Murray, Noble, Oklahoma, Seminole, Texas, Tulsa, Wagoner, Washita and Woodward counties. A list of all awarded contracts can be found by visiting www.odot.org/contracts, selecting the November 2018 letting, clicking Go, then Award. The eight-member Transportation Commission, appointed by the governor to oversee the state’s transportation development, awards contracts every month for road and bridge construction. The commission’s next meeting is scheduled for 11 a.m. Monday, Jan. 7, 2019. Contracts, bid information, the commission’s monthly agenda and project details can be viewed at www.odot.org.

ODOT Proposes Several Changes to Highway 99
 
02:42
By Aaron Nilsson/KTVL.comROGUE VALLEY, Ore. --The Oregon Department of Transportation presented a plan to Jackson County officials about changes to parts of Highway 99.The proposal includes several changes between south Medford and Ashland.O.D.O.T. started looking at crash and travel statistics at the Fern Valley interchange prior to 2010 and were concerned with how the new plans would impact traffic on Highway 99.‚“We noticed travel volumes have gone down and now we want to make some improvements,‚ O.D.O.T. Senior Planner, Ian Horlacher, said.Horlacher said the changes on the highway proposed include lights, lit mid-block pedestrian crosswalks, adding sidewalks, bike lanes and reducing certain stretches of the highway from five lanes to three.‚“One concern has been this highway for a long time,‚ Barely Used Beds owner, Dean Greico, said.‚“It's pretty crazy. There‚„s usually lots of cars and accidents here,‚ Phoenix Auto Parts Manager, Shawn Toothman, said. Greico and Toothman both work at businesses on Highway 99 and look forward to any changes coming to the roadway.‚“It would be really nice. You can't really walk on the highway because you're only a foot away from the cars out there,‚ Toothman said.Both the community and O.D.O.T. said adding a center turn lane and sidewalks could increase business and make it easier for residents to shop.‚“Anytime you have a customer make it safely and not worry about taking their life in their hand, I think it will ease the traveling public a bit more,‚ Horlacher said.Greico said lights are also desperately needed on the street.‚“It's pretty black out here. People miss turns and Hartley Road right here, they miss it or turn too sharply or they slow down and cars hit them because they can't see them,‚ Greico said.O.D.O.T. said the main goal of the project is to improve safety for all residents on and off the highway. The decision to approve the project now goes to the individual city councils with that decision is expected later this year.

ODOT Commission Meeting- January 3, 2018
 
31:20
Highlights of the Oklahoma Transportation Commission’s Wednesday, Jan. 3 meeting include an update on major interstate work in the Oklahoma City metro area on I-40 and I-235, reflection on major events affecting transportation in the past year, progress of the Statewide Transportation Improvement Program and approval of an engineering contract for the I-40 interchange in Clinton. Oklahoma Department of Transportation Executive Director Mike Patterson informed the Commission that roadwork is beginning this weekend on I-40 between I-240 and Peebly Rd. which will widen I-40 to six lanes and reconstruct the interchange at Choctaw Rd. Construction on the up to $75 million project is expected to take more than two years. Also announced was a future weekend closure of I-235 in late January for an on-going construction project at N. 50th St. Crews will close all lanes of the interstate while moving in an overhead railroad bridge into place. The event date, currently targeted for the weekend of Jan. 20 or Jan. 27, will be determined as the initial weekend approaches as it is dependent on weather conditions among many other factors. The three day event will be live streaming online and seating will be provided on site for those interested. Detailed information about the I-40 and I-235 lane closures and alternate routes will be issued by ODOT and made available online at www.odot.org under Traffic and Travel. Patterson highlighted several major transportation news items from 2017 with an emphasis on the impact of state funding cuts to the Eight-Year Construction Work Plan. The department was forced to delay projects and even take the unprecedented action of removing projects from the plan due to $840 million in cumulative state funding reductions in the past seven years. "In the past we’ve been able to adjust projects within the Eight-Year Plan to maintain a balanced budget, but this is the first year we’ve actually had to remove them due to budget reductions. We told the Legislature in 2016 that if we had to take another reduction this would happen," Executive Director Patterson said. "Removing projects, while difficult, was the fiscally responsible thing to do. When you have less money you have to make adjustments and keep focus." Other highlights included the department's endeavors toward more safety measures to reduce the number of fatalities statewide like installing centerline rumble strips and the energies toward the department's Work Zone Awareness campaign. He touched on expediting the Lexington Purcell bridge reconstruction and the continued efforts to address remaining structurally deficient highway bridges. The full 2017 Year in Review can be found at https://www.ok.gov/odot/Year_in_Review_2017.html. Commissioners approved the Statewide Transportation Improvement Program to be forwarded to the Federal Highway and Federal Transit Administrations for formal and final approval. The STIP is a detailed list of regionally significant construction projects anticipated for the next four federal fiscal years. The STIP includes the first four years of highway projects in ODOT’s Eight-Year Construction Work Plan and federally funded projects by the Association of Central Oklahoma Governments, tribal governments and public transit providers. Commissioners gave their approval for a $528,900 engineering contract to prepare construction plans to modify the interchange at the I-40 and I-40B west junction in Clinton. The project is included in the Eight-Year Construction Work Plan with a scheduled let date in federal fiscal year 2024 for a total estimate of $20 million. Since ODOT does not typically advertise new highway construction projects for bid in December, no construction contracts were awarded by the commission this month. The eight-member panel, appointed by the governor to oversee the state’s transportation development, meets monthly. The next meeting is scheduled for Feb. 12 at 11 a.m. Contracts, bid information, the commission’s monthly agenda and project details may be viewed at www.odot.org.

ODOT October 2015 Commission Meeting
 
37:17
Highlights of the Oklahoma Transportation Commission’s Monday, Oct. 12 meeting include approval of funding to improve 10 railroad crossings at several highways, city streets and county roads, a report on the need for more asset preservation projects and awarding of contracts for highway and bridge reconstruction in Tulsa, intersection modification in Claremore and the next phase of the bypass in Duncan. The commission approved funding for the first 10 rail crossing projects included in a major initiative to improve crossing locations on highways, city streets and county roads in Oklahoma. Approximately $100 million is expected to be spent over the next three years to improve surfaces and signals at 300 rail crossings statewide. Previously, ODOT had only about $8 million a year in rail safety program funds to spend which improved about 25 crossings per year. These improvements will be funded by combining proceeds from the recent sale of the Sooner Sub rail line, dedicated rail safety funds from ODOT and funding from partners like cities and counties. In his report to the commission, Executive Director Mike Patterson emphasized the importance of ODOT’s Asset Preservation Plan, which includes projects to extend the life of bridges and highway pavements for several years until major reconstruction can be performed. Due to the harsh winter and unprecedented flooding in the past year, the commission approved more funding to be directed toward asset preservation projects to help shore up pavements statewide. Contracts for two major projects in the Tulsa area received commission approval, including widening and bridge replacement on SH-266 just east of US-169 in Tulsa and modification of the SH-20 intersection with Southhaven Rd./Clubhouse Rd. in Claremore. Both contracts have possible financial incentives for early completion of the work. Commissioners also awarded a $15.6 million contract for construction of the Duncan Bypass south connector. The first phase includes construction of flyover ramps and new roadway from the existing bypass to Seminole Rd. The final phase will tie the bypass back in with US-81 on the south side of Duncan. In all, commissioners awarded 24 contracts totaling nearly $67 million to improve bridges, highways, interstates and roads. Most of these contracts were for asset preservation projects that span several counties. A list of awarded contracts can be viewed by visiting www.odot.org/newsmedia/awards/index.htm and clicking on the October link. The eight-member panel, appointed by the governor to oversee the state’s transportation development, awards project contracts for road and bridge construction every month. The next meeting is scheduled for November 9 at 11 a.m. in the R.A. Ward Transportation Building in Oklahoma City.

Updated Jul 18, 2015: The Ohio DOT will build the SPUI after all. GFParsons proposed the PFDI in summer 2014 but ODOT said no because they didn't have time to change plans by January 2015. GFParsons waited for the project to be awarded for construction (June 2015) so the contractor could submit the PFDI as a value engineering change proposal (VECP) whereby the contractor would split the $14 million (est) savings 50/50 with ODOT. The contractor chose not to because it would have meant layoffs for bridge workers (who will be kept busy instead building an unnecessary bridge and retaining walls). To read the draft Interchange Modification Study Addendum prepared by GFParsons, click here... http://www.gfparsons.com/pubs/IMSA%20PFDI%20lowres.pdf === Performance (design year 2035): ~4,600 veh per hour AM LOS B ~5,800 veh per hour PM LOS C Simulation starts approx. 45 mins. into PM peak hour. Unrealized est. savings: ~$20 million (including engineering + right-of-way) Planned project is to replace existing folded diamond with single point urban interchange (SPUI). * PFDI will operate at higher level of service than SPUI. * PFDI keeps existing bridge (has 95% sufficiency rating). * PFDI maintains straight roadway. SPUI will be constructed between reverse curves and on vertical crest curve with both conditions limiting sight distance and below national best practice standards for SPUI design. * PFDI maintains existing ramp spacing on Interstate (to northern US-23 system interchange). SPUI will degrade Interstate operations by reducing ramp spacing to 400-ft below ODOT standard minimum. Location: Toledo, Ohio https://www.google.com/maps/@41.6753735,-83.6938881,583m/data=!3m1!1e3

ODOT Commission Meeting- March 5, 2018
 
44:24
March Commission Wrap-Up: Importance of County Improvements for Roads and Bridges program highlighted; nearly $87 million in contracts awarded Highlights of the Oklahoma Transportation Commission’s Monday, March 5 meeting include an update on major work requiring weekend closures of I-235 in Oklahoma City and a briefing on legislative and funding issues, including the status of the County Improvements for Roads and Bridges program. Commissioners approved contracts for projects on I-235 and I-44 in Oklahoma City, US-169 near Owasso and US-75 in Tulsa. Also awarded were contracts for improvements to US-81 in Kingfisher County, US-77 in Garvin County and I-44 in Comanche County. Oklahoma Department of Transportation Executive Director Mike Patterson updated the commission on the work to hang the beams for the new N. 50th St. bridge over I-235 in Oklahoma City that required closure of the interstate over the previous weekend. He noted that a previously planned closure for the upcoming weekend to remove the old BNSF railroad bridge over I-235 would be delayed due to additional coordination with the railroad company and site preparation required. The full closure will now likely take place in early April. This work is part of on-going reconstruction and widening of the interstate to six lanes. Patterson reported on the status of the County Improvements for Roads and Bridges fund which receives an annual allocation of state funding to help match federal and local funding for major county projects and is administered by ODOT. Since creation of the CIRB program in 2006, major construction has been performed on 496 county bridges and 662 miles of county roads. Unfortunately, the program has taken significant funding cuts since 2015 with a total of $230 million transferred out of the CIRB fund to help balance the state budget. “While no future projects have been removed from the five-year CIRB plan due to these funding reductions so far, the cuts have put the CIRB fund in the red and in the position that progress will be slowed on contracts for planned county projects going forward.” Patterson said. Finally, Patterson commended ODOT crews who worked around the clock during recent winter weather and flooding events in several parts of the state. He noted that the freeze and thaw cycles and the recent rainfall has exacerbated already deteriorated highway pavement conditions statewide, causing ODOT workers to be very busy repairing roadways damaged with potholes. Commissioners voted to award contracts for the widening of the northbound I-235 off-ramp to N. 23rd St. and rehabilitation of the westbound I-44 bridge/ramp over SH-66 and SH-74 in Oklahoma City. Contracts were approved for Tulsa area projects including resurfacing of more than three miles of US-169 near Owasso and rehabilitation of the Peoria Ave. bridge over US-75 in Tulsa. The commission also awarded contracts for reconstruction of more than three miles of US-81 near Kingfisher, replacement of the US-77 bridge over the Washita River near Wynnewood and resurfacing of more than three miles of I-44 in Lawton. Commissioners voted to award 54 contracts totaling nearly $87 million to improve highways, roads and bridges in 35 counties. Contracts were awarded for projects in Adair, Caddo, Canadian, Cherokee, Comanche, Cotton, Craig, Creek, Delaware, Garvin, Grady, Harper, Jackson, Kay, Kingfisher, Kiowa, Lincoln, Major, Marshall, Mayes, Muskogee, Noble, Oklahoma, Osage, Pawnee, Pittsburg, Roger Mills, Seminole, Sequoyah, Texas, Tulsa, Washington, Washita, Woods and Woodward counties.

ODOT Commission Meeting- November 5, 2018
 
51:55
Highlights of the Oklahoma Transportation Commission’s Monday, Nov. 5, meeting included a visit from Gov. Mary Fallin for an update on I-235 construction in Oklahoma City and a review of awards won by the massive project. Contracts were awarded for replacement of the US-377/SH-99 Willis bridge in Marshall County, SH-3 resurfacing in Canadian County and I-44 resurfacing in Tulsa County. Oklahoma Department of Transportation Executive Director Mike Patterson welcomed Gov. Fallin to the commission meeting and provided an update on the current phase of I-235 reconstruction. Fallin and Patterson commented on completion of the latest phase of widening I-235 between N. 36th St. and I-44, which opened to traffic last weekend. Gov. Fallin and Patterson spoke at length about the efficiency of the project, which contractor Allen Contracting, Inc., completed about a year early. The effort to improve the I-235 corridor in north Oklahoma City has been a lengthy process. “This section of I-235 has been in need of reconstruction and widening for a decades and now we’re finally at the point that these critical improvements can be delivered,” Patterson said. “ODOT is grateful to the traveling public for its patience as we near the conclusion of years of work on I-235.” A highlight of the latest construction phase was movement of the massive BNSF railroad bridge into place over I-235 in January. The bridge consists of two 45-foot-tall spans totaling nearly 600 feet in length and weighing about four million pounds. At $88 million, the latest phase of reconstruction of I-235 was the largest dollar-amount highway contract awarded to date in state history, which included financial incentives for early completion and an earlier preparation project to resurface I-235. The project also included significant hydraulics improvements in the area, with installation of more than 30 drainage structures to handle heavy rainfall and address flooding in the vicinity. The opening of this segment will provide significant relief to motorists until spring 2019 when the next phase of construction on the corridor is scheduled to begin. This phase will be an estimated $80 million project to reconstruct and widen I-235 at the I-44 interchange itself. Patterson also highlighted the accolades earned by the I-235 project, including a first place award in the Best Highway/Bridge Project category of the Engineering News-Record’s Regional Best Projects for 2018 for the south region including Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Oklahoma and Texas. The project will compete with 17 other regional winners for the publication’s Best of the Best award, which will be announced early next year. The department’s public outreach efforts during the project earned a first place award from the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials in the 2018 Skills Contest. In addition, ODOT’s efforts also received an honorable mention in the 2018 UpperCase Awards from the Public Relations Society of America-Oklahoma City Chapter. The longest bridge maintained by ODOT will be replaced thanks to action by the commission to award a more than $43 million construction contract. Replacement of the US-377/SH-99 Willis bridge over Lake Texoma in Marshall County is estimated to take more than two years to complete. Construction of this bridge between Oklahoma and Texas is being funded jointly by ODOT and the Texas Department of Transportation. The Commission also awarded a $4.2 million contract to repave more than six miles of SH-3 near Piedmont in Canadian County and a $3.5 million contract to resurface almost two miles of I-44 east of I-244 in Tulsa. Altogether, commissioners voted to award 23 contracts totaling more than $80 million to improve highways, roads and bridges in 19 counties. Contracts were awarded for projects in Bryan, Caddo, Canadian, Carter, Choctaw, Cleveland, Comanche, Delaware, Grady, Marshall, Muskogee, Okmulgee, Ottawa, Payne, Pittsburg, Pottawatomie, Seminole, Sequoyah and Tulsa counties. A list of all awarded contracts can be found by visiting www.odot.org/contracts, selecting the October 2018 letting, clicking Go, then Award. The eight-member Transportation Commission, appointed by the governor to oversee the state’s transportation development, awards contracts every month for road and bridge construction. The commission’s next meeting is scheduled for 11 a.m. Monday, Dec. 3. Contracts, bid information, the commission’s monthly agenda and project details can be viewed at www.odot.org.

I-94 Improvements - Jackson County
 
05:31
The I-94 freeway in Jackson County, Michigan, was opened to traffic in the late 1950s and early 1960s. Obsolete design, coupled with significant traffic growth from local and international trade, has decreased the corridor’s functional and operational efficiencies. Through a collaborative and participatory process with the local stakeholders and the public, the Michigan Department of Transportation, MDOT, has identified a series of tailored improvements along the 9-mile-long corridor that will be implemented as funding becomes available. In anticipation of eventual improvements to I-94, MDOT has completed the replacement of the existing structures over I-94 at Hawkins Road, Dettman Road and Sargent Road to accommodate the future widening of I-94.

NH 24   Delhi Meerut Expressway
 
04:29
Delhi–Meerut Expressway (दिल्ली-मेरठ एक्सप्रेस वे) is an under construction 90 km long controlled-access expressway, connecting Delhi with Meerut via Dasna in Ghaziabad in India. While the present stretch of National Highway 24 (NH-24) up to Uttar Pradesh Gate will be widened to 14 lanes from the present eight, the road between UP Gate and Dasna will be also be fourteen-laned. The next phase of the expressway will be built on a new alignment from Dasna to Meerut—a six-lane stretch joining Meerut bypass.The 28-kilometre (17 mi) stretch between Nizamuddin Bridge and Dasna is one of the most congested areas in the NCR. The traffic flow is likely to increase considering dozens of new residential projects coming up along this stretch of NH-24. The total project cost is ₹7650 Crore. On 2 August 2016, after years of waiting, the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) has floated tenders for a 14-lane road on the critical section of NH-24—from Nizamuddin Bridge to Dasna (28 km)—a move which is expected to ease massive congestion on the stretch. The 22-km stretch of the Dasna-Hapur portion of the highway would be widened to six lanes.

ODOT Commission Meeting- September 5, 2017
 
28:59
September Commission Wrap-Up: Purcell/Lexington bridge to be replaced; $87 million in contracts awarded Highlights of the Oklahoma Transportation Commission’s Tuesday, Sept. 5 meeting include approval the Purcell/Lexington bridge replacement contract, recognition of the Oklahoma Department of Transportation’s work zone awareness efforts and an update on the rebalancing of the Eight-year Construction Work Plan. Contracts were also awarded for major projects on a city street in Comanche County, SH-53 in Carter County, US-69 in Pittsburg County and US-412/US-60 in Major County. The commission voted to award a contract for an up to $38 million project that includes possible financial incentives for early completion to replace the US-77/SH-39 bridge between Purcell and Lexington. The bridge, which spans the South Canadian River and BNSF railroad, was closed and drivers faced a 45 minute detour for several months in 2014 while ODOT performed emergency repairs to address cracks in the structure. Replacement of the bridge was not scheduled in ODOT’s Eight-year Plan at the time, but major effort was made to expedite the design and environmental processes to get the bridge under contract in three years. Executive Director Mike Patterson was pleased to announce that ODOT’s work zone awareness efforts received national recognition from the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials Standing Committee on Transportation Communications in August. The campaign “Your Life Matters: Drive Like It” received AASHTO’s highest award for public relations programs and the radio public service announcement won first place in its category. The campaign and PSA were produced in-house and cosponsored by the Oklahoma Highway Safety Office, Oklahoma Turnpike Authority and Midstate Traffic Control. Patterson also updated commissioners on the ongoing challenge of rebalancing the department’s Eight-year Plan, which is expected to go to the commission for approval later in the fall. With a total of $850 million in state funding reductions and diversions since 2010, a large number of upcoming road and bridge projects will be delayed and some will be removed. “Since the first Eight-year Plan in 2003, ODOT has never removed a project due to lack of funding, but unfortunately this year we’re faced with just that,” he said. “We are not on a sustainable path. Even though we’re on track to address our existing structurally deficient bridges, we have critical pavement, congestion and asset preservation issues that we won’t have the resources to touch.” Patterson noted that once the state reaches its goal of having less than 1 percent of all highway bridges rated structurally deficient by the end of this decade, ODOT will still have to replace or rehabilitate about 90 bridges each year just to keep up with the aging infrastructure system. The commission approved contracts, including a more than $8 million city street widening project on S.E. 45th St. in Lawton combining local and federal funds and a nearly $8 million reconstruction of more than seven miles of SH-53 near Springer in Carter County. Also awarded were contracts for a more than $5 million bridge rehabilitation project on US-69 at US-69 Business in McAlester and a nearly $8 million project to replace the US-412/US-60 bridge over the Cimarron River near Cleo Springs. Commissioners voted to award 19 contracts totaling nearly $87 million to improve highways, roads and bridges in 16 counties. Contracts were awarded for projects in Atoka, Beckham, Carter, Coal, Comanche, Cotton, Custer, Grady, Kiowa, Latimer, McClain, Major, Mayes, Muskogee, Pittsburg and Pontotoc counties. A list of all awarded contracts may be found by visiting www.odot.org/contracts, selecting the August 2017 letting and clicking Go and then Award.
