Nominee: On Time – Medium Project
The roughest road in America was rebuilt nine months ahead of schedule by the Oklahoma DOT, saving drivers months of traffic congestion.
The $60 million I-40 Canadian County reconstruction project, one of the largest projects in Oklahoma history at the time, was part of an overall plan to reconstruct and widen I-40 from the ever expanding Oklahoma City metro area to the west. The project also helped make one of central Oklahoma’s most heavily traveled routes safer and more beneficial for all by increasing efficiency of travel and commerce in the area. The project included roadway reconstruction, resurfacing, safety improvements and reconstruction of three sets of bridges along a seven-mile stretch of I-40 between Garth Brooks Boulevard in Yukon and US-81 in El Reno.
