Street projects have several key steps before they are completed. These include Public Input, Master Planning, City Council Approval, Design Development, Construction before the street is opened for use.

The Stillwater City Council called for volunteers to serve on the 2020 Transportation Advisory Committee. The first meeting was held March 5 with 18 members. The committee has been asked to evaluate three projects in regard to the long-term planning of the community.


Husband Street Bike Corridor Subcommittee

The concept is to create a corridor where active transportation is the preferred means of travel without decreasing desired and necessary access to residents and businesses along the corridor.

Goals include the following:

  • Work with the selected consultants
  • Develop and evaluate conceptual ideas
  • Receive and review public input
  • Recommend final design to City Council
  • Estimate 3 to 4 months for a recommendation
  • Design completed in 7 to 9 months

Sangre Road from 26th to 6th Avenues Subcommittee

Located on Sangre Road are Sangre Ridge Elementary School, Stillwater Middle School and Meridian Technology, which create large traffic demands during certain periods of the day. This subcommittee will look for alternatives to address the current and future traffic demands other than adding more lanes.

Goals include the following:

  • Review proposals from consultants and recommend firm to City Council
  • Develop and evaluate conceptual ideas
  • Receive and review public input
  • Recommend conceptual design to City Council
  • Estimated project timeline 6 to 9 months

Street Capital Improvement Options:

  • Sangre Rd./SW Safe School
  • Various Options
    • Original
    • Reverse Lane
    • 3 lanes
  • Combination
    • Improve Intersection
    • Expand Active Transportation to west and Meridian Tech
    • 3 to 4 lanes from school to 19th
    • 3 lane section in front of Meridian Tech

Highway 51 (6th Ave.) Corridor Subcommittee

Oklahoma Department of Transportation (ODOT) is responsible for the design and construction of state highways. The existing pavement age, current/future traffic projections, and existing accident history dictate improvements to the identified section of the highway. Engineering studies, looking out 50 to60 years, show a five-lane typical section solution.

ODOT and community will study the corridor to develop a long term plan that includes active transportation path locations, enhanced pedestrian access across the highway, access to OSU, connectivity between downtown and OSU, and types of future development encouraged along the corridor.

Goals include the following:

  • Develop criteria for the selection of a consultant
  • Interview and recommend a consultant to the City Council
  • Develop conceptual ideas
  • Receive and review public input
  • Recommend a conceptual plan to City Council
  • Estimated project timeline 9 to 12 months
