Oklahoma Turnpike Authority to pick up pieces and start all over

Tassie Katherine Hirschfeld talks with reporters at a protest outside of a fundraiser for Gov. Kevin Stitt. Members of Pike Off OTA, a group opposed to portions of the ACCESS turnpike expansion, protested the fundraiser Tuesday, Aug. 30, 2022, at the Association of Oklahoma General Contractors.


The Oklahoma Turnpike Authority will meet Tuesday with intentions of resuming work on the $5 billion toll road expansion that brought a lawsuit and a judge’s decision which said the agency violated the state’s Open Meetings Act.

After taking a step back, the OTA on Tuesday will reportedly approve nearly $133 million in engineering and consulting contracts which had been nullified last month by the judge’s ruling reported The Oklahoman.
