ODOT Virtual Open House on 4 to 6 Lane I-35 Improvement through Goldsby


The Oklahoma Department of Transportation (ODOT) is proposing to widen I-35 from 4 lanes to 6 lanes, beginning 1.0 mile south of Ladd Road and extending north to the Cleveland County Line in McClain County, Oklahoma. The current 4-lane roadway requires improvements to accommodate the existing traffic volume and enhance safety. The proposed project will include the addition of one 12-foot lane of traffic in each direction and widening of the inside shoulders to IO-feet with a median barrier wall in the center median along the length of the projects. The interchange ramps at Ladd Road, SH-74, and SH-9W will be modified as necessary to connect to the widened roadway. The purpose and need of the project are to improve the operational capacity of I-35 to accommodate existing and future traffic volumes, improve safety, and enhance local and regional connectivity. Improvements will occur along the existing alignment, with no new right-of-way being acquired. The road will remain open, and construction phased to maintain two lanes of traffic in each direction. Construction will be completed in two packages. The north package, from the northbound on-ramp at SH-74 in Goldsby to the Cleveland County Line, is scheduled to begin construction in 2023. The south package, extending to approximately one mile south of Ladd Road, is scheduled to begin construction in 2025.

A virtual open house will be held from January 11th to January 25, 2023 at The purpose of the virtual open house is to present information about the project and provide an opportunity for the public to submit comments. Following the meeting, the materials can be found at
