Public input sought on SH-9 widening in Pottawatomie, Cleveland Counties

The Shawnee News-Star
Road Closure

The Oklahoma Department of Transportation is hosting a virtual open house to provide updates and get public input on two proposed projects to reconstruct and widen segments of SH-9 in Cleveland and Pottawatomie counties.   

The projects would continue the ongoing effort to widen the SH-9 corridor between Norman and Tecumseh. The existing two-lane roadway has inadequate capacity for current and future traffic volumes. The department proposes reconstruction of SH-9 to a four-lane highway with a center turn lane and paved shoulders from 108th Ave. S.E. to 156th Ave. S.E. in Norman in Cleveland County and a four-lane highway with paved shoulders from SH-102 to Tecumseh in Pottawatomie County.
