Listen: Oklahoma City, Oklahoma City Council, Alexei discussed on Gwinn F Lippert
"Another flyover bridge through downtown Oklahoma City. And I just about had a conviction that couldn't believe what was going to do this. However, the planes were approved back in the nineteen ninety s and four maps or anything else that happened? But this just could not go on. I mean, he was just a mass mental considering because if you remember the crosstown expressway there is nothing built south of that highway. It literally this once before they took it down. I didn't quite get it. But now that it's gone. He realize what a dividing line the cross town expressway for or whatever highway was between north and south Oklahoma City. Yes, alexei.

We went to dot into the city council, and and quite honestly, Oklahoma City is a customer. Evolved docks. So when we went to dot with just said, this is not acceptable. What you're doing is is is really not going to work. It's going to recreate what we have high speed bypass for interstate forty through downtown. Oklahoma City was just a ridiculous proposal in my mind and others to we've got a lot of support from this. And so we had a old out through the cast of the Oklahoma City council in Oklahoma City to redesign. You know, the the new boulevard. Well, they came back with a plan that was more like the northwest expressway than anything. We had might not mean it was six lanes with a great big media. And it was just it was just not good. So we went back to the city council and pleaded with them to go back to Don in heaven decided well, they came back, but it was since time with a four lane highway through the middle of downtown Oklahoma City on the ground, the still it was it was just not like so once again, we went to the city council back to ODA and God's into redesign it for the third time. And this time they put the whole thing on the ground except the influence on the eastern on the West End,."
