Amtraks 15 year plan would restore service to Wichita via Newton, Kansas






Restoration of the Ponca City Santa Fe Station would cost locals $2 million, Ponca City Mayor Homer Nicholson and leaders are hoping Congress approves the funding bill.

Nicholson wants to see his town spend up to $2 million to restore the 110-year-old depot, which is just two blocks from Ponca City’s downtown and its shops and restaurants. In past years, his dream of Amtrak's restoring service between Oklahoma City and Newton was just a dream.


Project expensive, but could happen quickly

Amtrak officials suggest if funded, the wait for a Heartland Flyer could be as little as a “couple of years,” pending negotiations to upgrade and add passenger rail to existing BNSF freight track.

Stephen Gardner, Amtrak president, estimates upgrading tracks between Oklahoma City and Newton and adding two additional daily runs between Oklahoma City and Fort Worth will cost about $500 million.--Oklahoman, June 13, 2021

ACCESS OKLAHOMA




FAYETTEVILLE -- A portion of U.S. 412 in Arkansas and Oklahoma has been officially designated a future interstate on the National Highway System.

Connecting Northwest Arkansas and north central Oklahoma with an interstate highway will encourage economic development along the corridor and expand opportunities for employment in the region, according to officials in both states. Others say it would improve supply chain connectivity and make travel between the areas safer.

Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette https://www.nwaonline.com/news/2022/jan/31/portion-of-us-412-in-arkansas-oklahoma-designated/

Advancing and Connecting Communities and Economies Safely Statewide



Quote
“The future of our economy will depend on having a modern highway system that manages congestion and reliable travel times,” Stitt said. “ACCESS Oklahoma is a bold investment in our future that provides needed corridor connections and expansions while making travel easier and leading to more economic development across the state.”

MAP above shows OTA potential expansion routes between Moore & Norman

LOOP would encircle Oklahoma City connecting turnpikes with the Interstates I-240, I-40 & I-44.

Engineering management on behalf of the Oklahoma Turnpike Authority insist the project for the Kickapoo Turnpike’s south extension
is only in its earliest stages. But Norman residents are worried the turnpike expansion plans are a done deal, with hundreds of homes
set to be potentially impacted.

About 1,000 people crammed into CrossPointe Church in Norman on Thursday night to voice their concerns over the new plan.

The project — announced February 22, 2022 by the Oklahoma Turnpike Authority and called “Advancing and Connecting Communities and Economies
Safely Statewide,” or ACCESS for short — is a 15-year, $5 billion plan that turnpike officials say will help manage highway congestion,
improve travel times and give drivers a better path to the southeast Oklahoma City metro area.--Oklahoman, 03-05-2022

The pain of growth continues in the Norman-Moore, OK area which are among Oklahoma City's largest suburbs with approximately 130,000-65,000 residents,  Norman and Moore combined represent close to 200,000 residents encircling 200 sq, miles.   


Proposed toll road expansion

Let's face it, no one wants their dream homes uprooted to make room for an expressway regardless of whether you live in a well-to-do neighborhood or one not so well-to-do, it's your home, your life, your roots and your memories.  Progress comes with a price.

OKC is following the progress of many cities like Nashville, Kansas City & Cincinnati where the expressways loop around the inner city and expand that interstate loop into the surrounding suburbs.


The loop surrounds the city

The 121-foot pedestrian bridge will link the Lake Hefner and Lake Overholser Trail.

https://kfor.com/news/local/portions-of-nw-expressway-pedestrian-bridge-arrive-near-wilshire-blvd/
The $5.3 million project is funded by the 2007 Bond Program and the 2017 Better Streets, Safer City Bond Program.

OBS leaders attended a meeting on Wed. Jan 5th, 2017 with OKC City planners to provide input on plans to build a bike / pedestrian bridge over Northwest Highway at Wilshire. This is where the lake to lake trail goes, and is by the Firehouse Subs and OnCue gas station.
Funding for this bridge was approved by OKC citizens in 2007, and finally 10 years later we are starting to see some possible movement to get it built.

Also discussed was the problems with the bike trail on McArthur between Wilshire and Britton. There are too many stops, and dangerous car turning across that trail. A couple of alternatives were discussed; Follow the neighborhood streets, and the other was the installation of a stop light on McArthur at Canal Road ( just north of Whataburger and Jimmy's Egg) that would be just for bikes and walkers.
