Another try at a boulevard through Oklahoma City

Oklahoma City is listening to complaints and trying again at a design for the new boulevard running through downtown. At a past meeting, speaker after speaker took issue with a raised boulevard, so four new designs try to minimize roadway up in the air. Scott Friedman owns the Horn Trader Music Shop on the corner of Western and Reno.

“Somewhere will have to be an elevated portion, they’ve probably done a pretty good job of the desires of the pedestrian and the green area.”

He picked out one option in particular, with an overpass spanning Western. City Engineer Eric Wenger says it’s a balance.

“What’s going to happen with the alternatives that makes both groups happy, additional accesses but also makes it more walkable.”

The public can voice their opinion on the four proposals at a public meeting tonight at the Coca Cola Bricktown Events Center. It starts at 5:30. Or public comments will be taken online at okc.gov.
