Sign the petition opposing ODOT's proposal to bypass Muskogee on US69!
ODOT is counting on an "BUILD" discretionary grant to fund the bypass. Without the grant, there's no money to pay for it. A grant under BUILD is discretionary. Tell the Secretary of the U.S. Department of Transportation to deny ODOT'S Application for the bypass of US69 Project in Muskogee, Oklahoma by emailing the Department of Transportation below. Be sure to add your name and address at the end. If the link below doesn't work (send your email to: BUILDgrants@dot.gov). Suggested text:
Dear Secretary of the U.S. Department of Transportation,
I strongly oppose the Oklahoma Department of Transportation's project and application for a grant under the BUILD grant program to build a bypass around Muskogee, Oklahoma on US69. ODOT had an alternative plan to ease congestion that would cost 1/5th of the proposed bypass, but abandoned that project when grants under INFRA/BUILD were announced. The bypass is unneeded, unwanted, and a waste of taxpayer dollars. It has been opposed by both state and federal elected officials, the Mayor of City of Muskogee, the Creek Nation, and others. Please do not grant any BUILD funds to ODOT for any project on US69 that would bypass the City of Muskogee, Oklahoma.
