Input sought on I-35 widening projects in McClain County


The Oklahoma Department of Transportation (ODOT) is seeking public input on widening I-35 from four to six lanes between mile marker 100 just south of Ladd Road (mm 101) to just north of SH-9 West (mm 106) at the Cleveland and McClain County line.

The proposed projects include the addition of a new I-35 lane in each direction and widening the shoulders as well as adding a center median barrier wall.

Additionally, the interchange ramps at Ladd Road, SH 74 and SH-9W will be modified as necessary to accommodate the added lane capacity.

These projects are designed to improve safety and efficiency to accommodate expected traffic volume growth within the existing corridor right-of-way.

This work is anticipated to occur in two phases with the northern portion estimated at $24 million and tentatively scheduled for construction later in 2023 while the estimated $38 million southern portion is tentatively scheduled for 2025.

The public may find more details online at https://www.i35mcclaincounty.com/ through Wednesday, January 25.

The purpose of the virtual public meeting is to inform the public of the proposed projects and to solicit comments about the environmental and societal impact of the recommended widening of I-35 in McClain County. 

Written comments concerning this project may be submitted by January 25 in one of the following ways:

• Online at https://www.i35mcclaincounty.com/;

• By mail to the Environmental Programs Division Engineer, Oklahoma Department of Transportation, 200 N.E. 21st St., Oklahoma City, OK, 73105; or 

• By email to environment@odot.org.

To request an accommodation, please contact the ODOT ADA Coordinator at 405-521-4140 or the Oklahoma Relay Service at 1-800-722-0353. For ADA or Title VI questions, email ODOT-ada-titlevi@odot.org.
