(November 14, 2012) - Three conceptual drawings for the western end of the Oklahoma City Boulevard where Classen Boulevard, Reno Avenue and Western Avenue intersect will be presented at 5:30 p.m. on December 3 at the Coca Cola Bricktown Events Center, 425 E California Ave.
Attendees can park free in the lot directly south of the events center.
The meeting, which is open to the public, will be facilitated by the traffic and planning consulting firm, Stantec, who was hired by the City in September to study options for the Boulevard after initial plans to elevate the road way near Western drew public concern.
“This is an exceptionally complicated area of downtown,” Public Works director Eric Wenger said. “We are dealing with several busy streets that will intersect the new Oklahoma City Boulevard which will be a major entry and exit for downtown.”
The 2.4-mile Oklahoma City Boulevard, to be constructed by the Oklahoma Department of Transportation, will run from Pennsylvania to Byers along the former Interstate 40 route.
The Boulevard will be a premier entryway into Oklahoma City and include on-street parking, 15-foot sidewalks and landscaping.
The project is expected to be constructed in phases beginning in 2013.
