The widening of 9th Street (Lynn Lane/177th East Avenue) from two to five lanes has been completed in Broken Arrow. All five lanes of traffic have been opened and the new traffic signal at the intersection with Dallas Street has been fully activated.
The widening of 9th Street between Houston (81st) Street and the FlightSafety campus was approved by voters as part of both the 2011 and 2014 General Obligation Bond packages. The project cost about $4.3 million.
“On behalf of the City Council and Administration, I would like to thank Broken Arrow voters for their support by approving bond funds to complete this project. This is an important corridor within our community and we are glad that the work is completed and the road is now open,” said Broken Arrow Mayor Craig Thurmond.
The signal was installed at the 9th and Dallas intersection due to the amount of turning traffic the intersection sees. With the widening of 9th Street to 5 lanes, school-related traffic from All Saints Catholic School on the east side of 9th and commercial traffic from the PACCAR Winch plant to the west would face significant challenges without a traffic signal.
