We have made tremendous progress revitalizing our roads and bridges over the last 10-15 years under Republican leadership but there is a lot more to be done.

We currently have two agencies that are responsible for our roads and bridges in Oklahoma and they report to our Secretary of Transportation, Tim Gatz:

  1. The Oklahoma Department of Transportation (ODOT)
  2. The Oklahoma Turnpike Authority (OTA)

In the short term, I support utilizing shared services between these agencies to reduce cost, but the ultimate goal should be to consolidate OTA and ODOT into a single agency focused on providing the highest quality roads at the lowest government overhead and expense.
