OWASSO, Okla. - The city of Owasso held its first public meeting on the expansion of a heavily traveled road.

On Thursday night people were allowed to listen to the plans to expand 76th Street North, between Highway 169 and 129th Street.

The biggest headache for most Owasso drivers trying to get around 76th Street North is traffic jams, red lights and not being able to turn.

"Lots of traffic on 76th street," said Albert Cox.

The city wants to make a change and FOX23 found out they picked 76th Street North because it's one of the busiest roads in Owasso.

Officials said 15,000 cars travel on the road each day.

Public Works official Roger Stevens said they are going to widen it to four lanes while adding a bike lane and a turn lane.

"We are very excited to get this project moving forward and get the shovel in the ground," said Stevens.

Officials said the project is still two years away from starting and will take nine months to a year to complete.

Residents FOX23 talked to said with the amount of cars on the road each day, something had to be done.

"I wish they wouldn't do it but now that the city is growing there's not much they can do," said Brad Moody.
