YUKON, OK — A new interstate interchange will provide greater access to goods and services on the west side of Yukon.

Yukon Mayor Shelli Selby and Tim Gatz, Oklahoma Department of Transportation Secretary of Transportation and Oklahoma Transportation Executive Director, joined Yukon City Council members and community members to officially open the new Frisco Road bridge and I-40 interchange ramps to traffic.

“It’s rare to add a new interstate interchange, and projects like these only can be achieved through great partnerships like the one we have with the City of Yukon. This new gateway into the city will help alleviate traffic congestion at Garth Brooks Boulevard, and it creates new opportunities for economic development in the area,” Gatz said.

In addition to adding new I-40 on- and off-ramps at mile marker 134, contractor Sherwood Construction reconstructed and widened the more than 350-foot-long Frisco Road bridge over I-40 to five lanes with a sidewalk. The ramps feature new traffic signals at Frisco Road. Additionally, the City of Yukon reconstructed and widened Frisco Road to five lanes between I-40 and SH-66.

“We are thrilled to witness the ribbon cutting for the Frisco Road interchange. Many Yukon leaders have banded together over the past decade to see this happen, and it’s finally here. This interchange will mean so much to our community, opening up many opportunities for growth,” Selby said.
