President Biden and Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg are announcing a grant totaling $85 million to ODOT for the I-44, Highway 75 corridor improvements project in Tulsa.
It’s of nine nationally significant projects selected for this first year of the Mega Grant program. This project will upgrade the I-44 & US-75 interchange and make pedestrian and bicycle infrastructure improvements.
Recurrent congestion and poor safety make travel through the state-designated “critical urban freight” corridor difficult.
Travel delays and unreliable travel times also affect supply chains and reduce access to job opportunities.
By reducing crashes and travel delays and improving travel time reliability, this project will eliminate a freight bottleneck and expand access to jobs.
