Highway Expansion Affects Dangerous Highway 199

Posted:

DICKSON,OK--Be careful driving on highway 199 between Ardmore and Dickson--a major highway expansion started last week on Friday.

The two lane highway will eventually turn into a five lane--two lanes in each direction with a center turn lane.

ODOT asks that you watch out for those construction workers.

'Please just keep an eye out for that to come," said Jay Earp, ODOT Engineer for Division 7. "The contractor will be in the center median building some crossovers and then the traffic will be required to use the crossovers to get to the westbound lanes."

Phase one of the project will cost 11.2 million dollars and will be finished in September of next year.

The second phase begins in 2012.
