BACKGROUND: On June 9th, 2020, the Lawton Metropolitan Planning Organization (LMPO) approved a contract with EST, Inc. (EST) to develop a Conceptual Alignment and Feasibility Report for the Extension of Goodyear Boulevard from the West Industrial Park to US Highway 62. EST, Inc. produced a "Universe of Alternatives" which were brought before the Transportation Technical Committee and the Transportation Policy Board for review, consideration, and scrutiny. From the feedback provided, to include considerable input from our industrial partners, EST developed a preferred alternative that was selected by the LMPO on April 27th, 2021. EST has since produced the Final Report for the conceptual alignment, which was approved by the LMPO on October 5, 2021. The Oklahoma Department of Transportation has indicated support for this project, to include possibly partnering with the City to fund the construction. It would be beneficial for the City Council to consider accepting this final report and directing staff to negotiate with EST to develop a contract for the preparation of construction documents (plans, specifications, and bid documents). This contract would be brought to the City Council as soon as possible for approval.
