OKLAHOMA CITY – The public is invited to attend an open house to get information and provide feedback on an eight-mile MAPS 3 trail planned along the I-44 corridor from Lake Hefner to the Oklahoma River.

The open house is come-and-go and takes place from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, January 15 at Will Rogers Garden Exhibition Center in Will Rogers Park, 3400 NW 36th Street.

“Once built, the I-44 West Trail will open up recreation and commuting opportunities for cyclists, runners, walkers and inline skaters from NW Oklahoma City to the Oklahoma River,” MAPS 3 Program Manager David Todd said.

“We are excited about the urban trail and expect it will be widely used, particularly by commuters who want to bike to work downtown.”

The I-44 West Trail was recommended in the Oklahoma City Trails Master Plan. Funding for the $13.8 million trail project comes from MAPS 3.
