Metro residents can review conceptual drawings of the future Oklahoma City Boulevard, where Classen, Reno and Western intersect, through Dec. 17.

See the conceptual drawings here.

The drawings will be presented during a community meeting at 5:30 p.m. on December 3 at the Coca Cola Bricktown Events Center, located at 425 E California Ave. Attendees can park free in the lot directly south of the events center. Everyone is invited to attend.

Those who can't attend the meeting can watch it live on Ustream.  The meeting will also be posted on www.okc.gov by 4 p.m. the following day, Tuesday, Dec 18.

Comments about the project will be accepted during the meeting and through an online comment card posted on www.okc.gov and http://www.okladot.state.ok.us through December 17. 

The meeting will be facilitated by Stantec, Inc., the traffic and planning consulting firm hired by the City to study options for the Western end of the Boulevard.  The meeting is co-hosted by the City of Oklahoma City and the Oklahoma Department of Transportation.

The 2.4-mile Oklahoma City Boulevard, to be constructed by the Oklahoma Department of Transportation, will run from Pennsylvania to Byers along the former Interstate 40 route. 

The Boulevard will be a premier entryway into Oklahoma City and include on-street parking, 15-foot sidewalks and landscaping. The project is expected to be constructed in phases beginning in 2013.
