The History

On February 22, 2022 the Oklahoma Turnpike Authority unveiled it’s new plans for the addition of two turnpikes: the East-West Corridor and the South Extension Turnpike. Governor Stitt announced the plans to the Oklahoma Turnpike Authority Board of Directors claiming the turnpikes would just be going through farmlands and pasturelands that wouldn’t be disrupted. When the information was picked up by the media and put on social media, hundreds of home owners first learned that their houses were in or near the path of the proposed turnpike. There were no public discussions or previous press releases about the impact of these projects.

The Oklahoma Turnpike Authority has become too powerful and detached. They are held accountable by their board members, only one of whom is an elected official (Governor Stitt) and have the sole discretion to determine where turnpikes will be built with no input from the citizens or the municipalities they will affect.

Estimated Total Losses

  • Homes 550-600
  • Large Structures 610
  • Parcels of Land 781

Additional Structures Depreciated within a 1/2 Mile

  • Homes 3112
  • Large Structures 1666

These numbers are estimated based on comparing the outdated images used on the AccessOklahoma.com map with the more up-to-date images on the Cleveland/McClain county Assessor Maps.

Who Does This Concern?

All Oklahomans are in this fight!!!  No land is safe from the OTA and their use of Eminent Domain, especially if you are in any of the marked areas, as the OTA already has legislative approval for all these regions. Numbers correspond to their number in the state statute.
