OKLAHOMA CITY -- The old I-40 is coming down in stages, and now many are questioning the plans for the highway that will be built in its place.

Tuesday night, city officials will hold another community meeting to hear concerns from citizens.

City leaders have discussed a new six-lane elevated portion of highway between Walker and Western.

However, in the past several weeks talk of a roundabout and the benefits it could hold for the city are gaining popularity among citizens.

City leaders and ODOT administrators will both be present.

Citizens are invited to attend.

The meeting starts at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday at the Coca Cola Events Center in Bricktown.

Free parking is available.

A formal presentation of plans is scheduled first, before the public opinion portion.

ODOT officials have said the main point of discussion at Tuesday's meeting will center around whether the roadway will be four or six lanes.

The boulevard project is estimated to cost about $80 million.
