OKLAHOMA CITY - A big meeting for the new Oklahoma City Boulevard is planned for Monday night.

The meeting is organized by City Councilman Ed Shadid, Bob Kemper and others who oppose a plan to elevate the new highway that will take the place of the old I-40 Crosstown Bridge in downtown.

Some residents and business owners are hoping the Boulevard will remain grounded so traffic can flow easily into nearby businesses. Some have even suggested putting roundabouts on the multi-million Oklahoma City Boulevard.

No final decisions on the design have been made.

Monday's meeting is at the Farmer's Market on S. Klein and begins at 5:30 p.m.

ODOT is also having a meeting on August 21st at 5:30 to present concepts for the Boulevard. That meeting is scheduled at the Coca Cola Bricktown Events Center.
