Stop the Muskogee US69 Bypass

Stop ODOT from bypassing Muskogee on US69

Our community is under attack by ODOT!

The Oklahoma Department of Transportation is planning a bypass that will cost, according to their own estimates, up to 100 million dollars, and that will only save 2 to 8 minutes of travel time through the area.  This site is dedicated to stopping ODOT from further planning and construction of a bypass that would destroy the economic heart of the community, when the bypass is unneeded, unwanted, and a waste of taxpayer dollars.  Sign the online petition at https://petitions.moveon.org/sign/stop-odot that will be presented to the Transportation Commissioners, ODOT, the entire state Oklahoma Legislature, and the Governor, and show them you oppose the Muskogee Bypass!


Taking on the one of the largest and well funded agencies in Oklahoma isn't cheap or easy.  Over 9000 emails alone were supplied, and thousands of other documents that had to examined and copied.  If you wish to contribute to our cause, please click on the button below. Thanks for your support!

US 69 BYPASS ELIMINATED FROM EIGHT YEAR PLAN

UPDATE: Elections matter! ODOT has adopted the Eight Year Construction Plan for 2019 and the Muskogee Bypass is no longer listed in the plan itself.  In addition, ODOT has removed the "US69 Realignment" page completely from its website.


Normally, you would think that means the threat of the bypass is over.


But, think again. The Division I Transportation Commissioner confirmed that the bypass "is still an option".  There has been no public announcement by ODOT about their plans for the bypass. And ODOT can simply add it back in next year.  So, we must be proactive to keep ODOT from building the bypass.


One thing you can do in the short time is support candidates that are committed to stopping the bypass. Those candidates are:


Avery Frix, House of Representatives. Avery worked hard last year in the House to help pass the bill Governor Fallin vetoed that would have allowed cities to have a voice when ODOT proposes to build a bypass.  Plus, he's a decent young man with a good head on his shoulders.


Chris Sneed, House of Representatives.  Chris has publicly stated he will oppose the bypass.


Kim David, Senate.  She sponsored last year's bill which Governor Fallin vetoed and worked hard to pass the bill.


Elections matter. Please support those candidates who have stated publicly that they will oppose ODOT's plan to bypass Muskogee! Our future depends on it.
