Tulsa, Oklahoma: Gilcrease Expressway toll road construction on track for June 2022 completion

Motorists could be driving along a five-mile extension of the Gilcrease Expressway tollway by June 2022 or sooner under a plan outlined Thursday by state transportation officials.

While the five-mile toll road still has a few financial hurdles to clear before construction can begin, Oklahoma Turnpike Authority Executive Director Tim Gatz told a gathering of local and state officials Thursday in Tulsa that his agency has made “really, really good progress” in recent months.

“We’re getting to the point where we’re going to make this project a reality,” Gatz said, during a meeting of the Gilcrease Expressway working group, a mix of local and state officials and companies working on the project.
