MAPS 4 will help transform the appearance of Oklahoma City with targeted investments in beautification. The project will elevate our daily experience as residents and improve our first impression for visitors.

As $25 million in funding allows, beautification projects will include:

  • City entrance gateways along interstates
  • Approaches to Will Rogers World Airport (including the creation of the Bessie Coleman Garden near the airport, State Highway 152 from Meridian to I-44 and I-44 from State Highway 152 to I-40)
  • Three pedestrian bridges over the interstates in south Oklahoma City
  • I-240 from I-44 to I-35
  • East and west entrances to the Clara Luper Corridor
  • NE 23rd Street and Martin Luther King Avenue, including up to $5 million for potential land acquisition and remediation of the northeast corner
  • Oklahoma City University corridor along NW 23rd Street
  • Reno Avenue and Eastern Avenue corridor between Bricktown and the American Indian Cultural Center and Museum
  • I-35 and I-44 bridges over the Oklahoma River
  • I-44 from Portland Avenue to Classen Boulevard
  • I-40 and Council Road
  • Route 66
  • Public art and/or monuments at key intersections, including a statue of Ralph Ellison
  • Updated low-maintenance landscaping along key arterial roads
  • Trees (at least $1 million)

MAPS 4 also includes a $5 million operating fund to provide permanent staff dedicated to beautification and ongoing maintenance.
