On this Thursday (3/15/2012), the Oklahoma Department of Transportation will be seeking community input on their plans to widen Highway 4 north of Yukon out to Northwest Expressway. From the emails I’ve seen going around on the subject, the new road will be four lanes wide with 8 foot shoulders. Cyclists are encouraged to attend this meeting to encourage ODOT to paint a cycle path along with wide shoulder.
The meeting will take place at 6:00 PM at the Yukon Police Community Room at 100 S. Ranchwood Blvd in Yukon. Wear a jersey and help make this popular cycling area even better!
