I-40 and Choctaw Rd. Interchange Reconstruction and Widening
Eastbound and westbound I-40 will be widened to six lanes from I-240 to Peebly Rd. in 2018 and the I-40 and Choctaw Rd. interchange will be reconstructed.
About the Project
- The I-40 and Choctaw Road interchange (mm 165-167) will be reconstructed from a partial clover leaf interchange to a full diamond interchange.
- I-40 will be widened to six lanes from the I-240 junction to Peebly Rd. (mm 169).
- The project went to bid in September 2017 and went before the Oklahoma Transportation Commission in October 2017 for consideration.
- The up to $75 million contract was awarded to Duit Construction Co. Inc. of Edmond.
- Work is expected to begin in early 2018.
- An average of 56,000 vehicles per day travel this area.
- This project is expected to take more than two years to complete.
- Eastbound and westbound I-40 also will be reconstructed and widened to six lanes from Peebly Rd. (mm 169) east to the Oklahoma and Pottawatomie county line (mm 173) in two projects:
- In 2017, the Oklahoma Turnpike Authority is expected to award the Northeast OK County Loop turnpike project that will link I-40 and I-44 (Turner Turnpike). This $44 million interchange project includes the widening of I-40 to six lanes from just east of Peebly Rd. (mm 169) to just east of Luther Rd. (mm 171) where the new turnpike interchange will link to I-40. ODOT will participate in the construction cost at about $16 million. Learn more about this project here.
- In FFY 2021, ODOT plans to widen I-40 from just east of Luther Rd. (mm 171) to just east of Harrah-Newalla Rd. (mm 173) — estimated $32 million.
- These projects are part of an overall I-40 corridor widening plan from Shawnee to I-240 in Oklahoma City.
