The Oklahoma Department of Transportation (ODOT) and Arkansas Department of Transportation (ARDOT) are each hosting online, virtual public meetings to display materials and provide an opportunity to comment on the next phase of the U.S. 412 Planning and Environmental Linkages (PEL) Study. The U.S. 412 PEL study area extends approximately 190 miles from I-35 in Oklahoma to I-49 in Arkansas. ODOT and ARDOT are working jointly on the PEL study in preparation for the U.S. 412 corridor to be upgraded to an interstate as identified in the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA), signed into law in November 2021.

The study is focused on:

  • Complying with Congressionally mandated legislation to convert U.S. 412 to an Interstate
  • Addressing safety
  • Improving mobility
  • Enhancing system linkage by connecting rural and urban communities, national airports and inland ports and freight supply chains

Public Engagement Period Information: During the first public engagement period, attendees were able to view the Draft Purpose and Need and Baseline Conditions Report online. During this second public engagement period, the public can review the Universe of Alternatives and Alternatives Screening Methodology, which will describe how transportation solutions are being evaluated for potential implementation on U.S. 412. As part of the efforts to solicit public feedback on the next phase of the U.S. 412 PEL Study, ODOT and ARDOT are seeking your input. You are invited to learn about the next phase of the study, ask questions, and submit feedback via the study webpages.

A self-guided virtual presentation and comment forms are posted on both ODOT and ARDOT study webpages. You are invited to view the virtual meeting materials and submit comments through October 31, 2023.
