Poe & Associates completed construction plans for the reconstruction of SH-152 in Binger, Oklahoma. Phase 1 reconstructed SH-152 beginning two miles east of the intersection of SH-152 and SH-146 and extending east through the town to Apache Avenue, totaling approximately 2.2 miles. This phase also included a 1000’ of large diameter storm sewer trunk line constructed through downtown Binger to help provide relief for the drainage challenges being experience by the citizens. Other notable project features included retaining walls, climbing lanes, and other roadway improvements to improve sight distance and meet the vertical geometry challenges. Phase I construction was completed in 2012.
The recently constructed (2018) Phase 2 portion of the project included improvements along SH-152, beginning approximately .5 miles west of the junction with SH-146 and extending east to approximately 2 miles east of SH-146. This section of the project was extremely challenging due to the right-of-way limitations and the sight distance issues with the rolling terrain. The design utilized, improved shoulders, retaining walls, turn lanes, and cross drain improvements to the section while minimizing impacts to the existing right-of-way. To ensure success for this project, meetings with the stakeholders were held during the design process to ensure access and that the project goals were being met. The project was completed in 2018 and placed in the OAPA Full Depth category. The overall construction cost estimates for Phase I were $7.6 M and Phase 2 were $9.3 M.
Construction Cost – $16.9 million
Completion – 2018
