Oklahoma Transportation Commission Authorizes DOT to Negotiate Federal Financing for Gilcrease Expressway near Tulsa

The Oklahoma Transportation Commission on Monday authorized the Oklahoma Department of Transportation to negotiate a financing agreement with the federal government for part of the Gilcrease Expressway.

“This will allow us to go ahead and secure the last piece of the financing that’s going to be necessary to move the Gilcrease project forward to construction and then have a payment agreement with the turnpike authority to facilitate the payment,” said ODOT Director Tim Gatz.
