Although Oklahoma didn't precisely win the lotto, it will receive enormous sums of money to upgrade the infrastructure in southwest Tulsa.
The state has received $85 million from the U.S. Department of Transportation for initiatives connected to the Interstate 44/U.S. 75 intersection, the agency announced on Tuesday.
According to officials, the funding is the largest that the Oklahoma Department of Transportation has ever gotten and is one of nine "mega grants" that were given out nationally.
Tuesday, President Joe Biden visited the $292 million Hudson Tunnel project in New York City to celebrate the initiative.
The structurally dated I-44/U.S. 75 interchange's rebuilding project's $90 million first phase got under way in January 2021.
