The Oklahoma Department of Transportation (ODOT) is hosting an open house meeting Nov. 15 to present information and gather input on a proposed project to improve State Highway 82 between State Highway 100 and Snake Creek in the Blackgum area near Vian in Sequoyah County.
This section of SH-82 has sharp curves, steep slopes, no shoulders and substandard intersections. To improve the safety of the highway, ODOT is evaluating multiple alternatives, taking into consideration construction costs, right-of-way and utility impacts, environmental constraints and the aesthetic qualities of the roadway, which is part of the Cherokee Hills Scenic Byway.
While no formal presentation is scheduled, members of the public can come anytime during this open house meeting to watch a short video, view plans of the proposed improvements, speak with engineers and planners and give input on the project. All information will be made available online following the meeting at www.odot.org/publicmeetings.
