Virtual Open House: November 6 - November 23, 2020
The Virtual Open House ended on November 23, 2020.
The Oklahoma Department of Transportation (ODOT), in partnership with Canadian County, proposes to make safety improvements at the intersection of SH-66 and Banner Road in Canadian County, Oklahoma. The current traffic speeds, existing intersection configuration, and control type on SH-66 are being considered for improvement. The purpose of the proposed improvements is to provide a safer intersection configuration, provide operational improvements to manage increasing traffic volumes, and provide improvements to better address vehicular movements. Recent traffic counts at the intersection range from approximately 5,100 vehicles per day (vpd) to 6,500 vpd on SH-66 and 2,200 vpd to 3,500 vpd on Banner Road. Traffic volumes along this portion of the corridor are anticipated to increase in the future due to development in the area.
Three separate design alternatives are currently being considered: "Alternative A - Single-lane Roundabout," "Alternative B - All-way Stop Control," and "Alternative C - Signalized Intersection." All three design alternatives would be constructed within the current limits of the paved roadway. Details of the design alternatives are included in the Project Background and Alternatives webpage.
The proposed project design is scheduled to be completed in Spring 2021. Construction would likely begin in Summer 2021 with an estimated completion of construction for all alternatives by Winter 2021/2022. Acquisition of new right-of-way is not proposed, and access to residences and businesses would be maintained during construction.
