Decision in Downtown Boulevard Project Expected Today
It's month's in the making, Oklahoma City council members are set
to make a final decision on the Downtown Boulevard Project today.
The Western, Classen and Reno corridor is the spot that's
generating a lot of controversy in the Downtown Boulevard Project and it
all has to deal with an overpass in this area. It's a small aspect of
the overall project, but it has many people speaking out.
However, after today, plans for downtown will be a lot clearer.
The Oklahoma City, City Council will vote on a revised plan for the
Downtown Boulevard that would navigate the Western, Classen and Reno
corridor with a shorter overpass than was previously proposed
The proposed bridge is smaller than what was originally considered
by the council in developing the boulevard, but some people don't like
the plan because they feel it would divide North and South Downtown.
We'll have the latest on that plan tonight on the Primetime News at Nine.
