Building the five-mile, four-lane extension would leave only the stretch from Edison Street to the Tisdale Expressway to be completed in northwest Tulsa.

This seems like it would be a challenging stretch to build with the terrain in that area.  What are the odds this part doesn’t get built?

So is this just this leg and doesn’t include connecting it to the existing highway north of 412?

I'm failing to see the cost benefit of this, even for W. 21st st. industry.  I-244 ostensibly was aligned the way it was with its exits to help link those businesses as well as the rail yards to the Interstate system.
