Turnpike at Elm Intersection & Frontage Road Update. Mayor Sims (lower right) and Engineers meet.
The Oklahoma Turnpike Authority Engineers and City of Jenks Engineers met at City Hall on November 3, 2014, to review plans at the halfway mark for design of the changes to the intersection at Elm and the Creek Turnpike. In addition, this meeting addressed parallel frontage road design from the Arkansas River paralleling the Turnpike to the Elm Street intersection. The engineering design plans are now 50% complete, and the estimated time for the project to be under construction remains Fall 2015. This project is funded by a combination of Turpike Funds and Jenks voter approved Bond Funds.
