September Transportation Commission meeting scheduled for Tuesday, Sept. 7

Fri, 03 Sep 2021 09:48:42 CDT

September Transportation Commission meeting scheduled for Tuesday, Sept. 7 Due to the Labor Day holiday, the Oklahoma Transportation Commissionís monthly meeting is scheduled for 11 a.m. Tuesday, Sept. 7, in the R.A. Ward Transportation Building, 200 N.E. 21st St., Oklahoma City. Members of the public and media may attend or watch the livestream video online.

Items to be addressed at the meeting:
∑ Secretary of Transportation Tim Gatz will update the commission on Oklahoma Transportationís progress on structurally deficient bridges during the past year, with Oklahoma seeking to remain a Top Ten State for highway bridge conditions.
∑ Gatz will also highlight upcoming Rail Safety Week in September, along with other safety topics including the dangers of impaired driving and bridge damage caused by over-height truck loads.
∑ The commission is expected to consider authorizing the Oklahoma Department of Transportation to pursue a state bond sale to secure federal funding for major improvements to rural two-lane highways with deficient shoulders. This would make Oklahoma one of the first states in the nation to take advantage of a rural area Transportation Infrastructure Finance and Innovation Act (TIFIA) loan from the U.S. Department of Transportation.
∑ Commissioners will be asked to vote on whether to award a nearly $19 million contract to reconstruct a segment of SH-33 in Cushing, along with contracts for preventative maintenance work on several bridges in Tulsa and Broken Arrow and the first phase of US-54 reconstruction near the Kansas state line in Texas County.
