The Harvest Hills South Neighborhood Association invited Chad Meisenburg of the City of Oklahoma City to be our first guest speaker of 2023. We are so thankful that Chad came to answer our questions regarding the construction happening in around our community. His insight into the timeline and planning of current OKC improvements was very helpful.
- Construction on 82nd and Council will take roughly 3-4 months and will include a stoplight with a blinking left turn arrow to enter the neighborhood while traveling North on Council.
- Widening of Wilshire West of the turnpike has also included a lowering of a hill for better line of sight for those turning onto Wilshire from side roads. (Turnpike bridge will continue to be narrow as it must be widened by Turnpike Authority)
- Bridge crossing NW Expressway at Wilshire is nearly done and should be open to foot and bike traffic in roughly 3 months.
- North bound County Line Road is getting an East bound turn lane onto NW Expressway.
Our neighborhood is located in Ward 1 and this has been one of the fastest growing areas in the OKC metro so we can expect to see these types of construction projects for the foreseeable future as new housing will bring more traffic to these intersections around the north west corner of OKC.
