Public input sought on SH-9 widening plan for Pottawatomie, Cleveland counties


The Oklahoma Department of Transportation is hosting a virtual open house to provide updates and get public input on planned reconstruction of SH-9 near Pink in Cleveland and Pottawatomie counties. 

The project will widen SH-9 to four lanes with a center turn lane between the Pecan Creek bridge, about one mile east of Harrah Road, in Cleveland County and the SH-102 junction in Pottawatomie County to accommodate current and future traffic volumes. This project is part of ODOT’s ongoing effort to complete a four-lane corridor between Norman and Tecumseh. Additionally, bridges will be replaced at Bullfrog Creek and Jim Creek, and the SH-9 intersection at Fishmarket Rd./NS-330 Rd. will be improved. The department is proposing stop signs on SH-102 at the intersection with SH-9; however, the public is asked to provide feedback on possible future alternatives for the intersection, including a roundabout or a J-turn. 

Right-of-way acquisition and utility relocation is scheduled to begin later in 2021 and construction is expected to begin in Federal Fiscal Year 2027.
