Work is expected to complete in winter 2023.
The intersection of US-177/Perkins Rd. and the entrance to the Aldi’s grocery store between E. Tyler Ave. and Redbud Dr. in Stillwater became a four-way stop Thursday through fall 2022 as part of an ongoing highway reconstruction project.
Other US-177/Perkins Rd. intersections now switched to four-way stops include Knotts Ave. and Krayler Ave. Temporary removal of the traffic signals at these three locations was necessary to provide enough room for ongoing construction.
Northbound and southbound US-177/Perkins Rd. remain narrowed to one lane in each direction between Hall of Fame Ave. and Lakeview Rd. in Stillwater through fall 2022 for a nearly two-year pavement reconstruction project.
Work will suspend in the fall for Oklahoma State University game day weekend traffic and resume after football season completes.
Additionally, motorists can expect no left turns allowed at Hall of Fame Ave., McElroy Rd., Lakeview Rd. and Redbud Dr. to help with traffic flow through the work zone. Motorists also should expect lane shifts and a reduced speed limit in the work zone. Drivers are advised to expect delays and plan for extra travel time in the area or locate alternate routes. Additionally, motorists can expect impacts to business driveways throughout the extent of the project, however, at least one entrance will remain open at all times to businesses.
The nearly $18 million project was awarded by the Oklahoma Transportation Commission to Duit Construction Company Inc., of Edmond, in October. This work is in partnership with the City of Stillwater. Work is expected to complete in winter 2023.
