OKLAHOMANS PROJECTED TO BENEFIT
ESTIMATED PROJECT DURATION
more than 24 months
The closing of Douglas Boulevard from SE 44th to SE 74th is proposed by Tinker Air Force Base to expand the footprint of the base and allow for expanded mission capacity . To accommodate this closing the City will need to relocate a 60? water transmission line and provide infrastructure for increased traffic that will be diverted to Post Road. This project is scalable and all $35M is for the water line relocation and sewer work.
This project does not require interventions.
Tinker Air Force Base is in close proximity to a majority of qualified census tracts in the State of Oklahoma. According to the CDC Social Vulnerability Index (ATSDR) 2018 data, approximately 70 percent of the census tracts near Tinker Air Force Base are ranked as highly vulnerable. The variables considered in the ranking include socioeconomic factors, household composition and disability, minority status and language, and housing type and transportation. This project will enable vulnerable populations to benefit from this project through jobs creation, infrastructure improvements, and economic investments in the region. Economic development growth, which will be enabled by this project, allows the City of Oklahoma City to continue to provide affordable water, wastewater, and solid waste management utility rates for vulnerable communities by spreading costs to more customers, businesses, and industries as the area continues to develop.
The City of Oklahoma City uses key performance indicators for projects to evaluate the success of a project. Measures include tracking actual to planned Project Completion Time, Budget to Actual, and Engineering Estimate compared to Actual Bids. Plan for collecting required programmatic data includes inspection, schedule tracking/Gantt Charts, and progress meetings using software such as GIS, Primavera, and future use of a Project Management Information System.
