152 will be expanded and routed around the community of Wheatland,
a small town southwest of Oklahoma City, under a plan that received
approval from state transportation commissioners Jan. 6, The Oklahoma
City Oklahoman reported.
The plan calls
for a two-mile stretch of the two-lane highway to be rebuilt as a
five-land road from its current path along 74th Street near the Canadian
County line north to 59th Street, where it would become a four-lane
divided highway until it meets to Council Road. The new alignment
runs west and north of the community, rather than through it as the
current road does.
