New Construction Hotline
With many of the Driving Forward projects under construction or soon to be under construction, the Oklahoma Turnpike Authority has activated a construction hotline for those who have concerns and questions regarding construction activities.
The new construction hotline number is (405) 425-7456. Those with questions and concerns can call the number and leave a voicemail and appropriate calls will be returned within 48 hours if possible.
"The ‘Driving Forward’ plan is about ensuring safe travel and relieving congestion to shorten commutes. As Oklahoma’s population grows, it will require a greater commitment to modernizing and improving our transportation infrastructure. Making these investments today will prevent our state from having to respond to a crisis in the future."
- Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin
"We applaud recent efforts that Gov. Mary Fallin and the Oklahoma Turnpike Authority have put into strengthening the state's roadways, specifically the news that central Oklahoma will see the Kilpatrick Extension expanded on its west side and a new turnpike built in eastern Oklahoma County."
- Roy Williams,
CEO and president of the Greater Oklahoma City Chamber
"A strategic plan like the Driving Forward initiative is what our transportation system needs...by recognizing the great need and future demands that will be placed on our state’s transportation system, I applaud the Governor for her commitment to the Driving Forward plan."
- Ret. Major General Rita Aragon,
Oklahoma Secretary of Military Affairs
