Woodward County Transportation Projects

Legislative Update

In my previous column, I gave an update of Oklahoma Department of Transportation roads and bridges projects in Blaine and Dewey Counties. In this one, I detail projects in Woodward and Woodward County. This is an annual update I like to provide district residents so they know areas of road construction and also can see how their transportation dollars are spent.

The next section of U.S. Highway 270 has been awarded. It begins 10.5 miles southeast of State Highway 50 and extends 3.7 miles southeast. This is a grade, drain, bridge and surface project adding two new lanes and rehabilitating the existing lanes to accomplish a four-lane divided highway at a cost of approximately $12.3 million. Construction has just begun and is expected to be completed by fall of 2020.
