Chris has made a number of changes to meet this request. The Bonneyville routes have been modified to provide for a food stop in Middlebury or Shipshewana. Contracts for utility relocation, grading, and drainage work were awarded at OTA's November 16 meeting.
If they want to produce, it can be open by the end of the year. Tolls were waived until Forming a group called "Tulsans Against Turnpikes", around citizens gathered at a meeting on February 16,to discuss the proposed toll road.
Opponents to the turnpike cited detrimental effects to their community and to the environment as their concerns. It would no longer be a residential area," said Tom Taylor, an area resident. The three attendants also gave examples of firsthand experience with turnpike customers that had convinced them that motorists were not as supportive of turnpikes as OTA executives believed.
OTA responded to their employees' remarks by highlighting an Occupational Safety and Health Administration study that found that the toll gate that the three attendants worked at met all safety standards.
Some turnpike protesters removed their names from the customer list at Mazzio's Italian Eatery on June On June 24, about forty protesters picketed the Bank of Oklahomaand around six closed their accounts. The chief executives of both businesses were on the board of the Chamber of Commerce. Randle also canceled a planned meeting with the group, refusing to meet with them until they ceased the boycott.
A Tulsans Against Turnpikes board member publicly replied to the mayor's statement by denying that a boycott was taking place, stating that the group only recommended that members not do business with Mazzio's and Bank of Oklahoma because of their support for the Creek Turnpike project via their activity with the Chamber of Commerce.
He also suggested that Randle was simply looking for an excuse to avoid the meeting. Holding a joint rally with Tulsans Against Turnpikes and several environmental groups at Hunter Park, a Greenpeace spokeswoman said on October 20 that the Creek Turnpike's construction "will be setting up Oklahoma as a hazardous waste dumping ground". Greenpeace's regional coordinator was scheduled to speak at an area library on the same day, but his appearance was canceled when the organization's bus ran out of fuel.
A local resident at the Hunter Park forum was quoted as being concerned that the turnpike may allow eastern states such as New York to ship AIDS -contaminated freight through the area.
The letter was approved by the Jenks City Council on November The letter also included a petition in opposition to the turnpike with over 1, signatures. The petition alleged that local and state officials violated the state's open meetings, conspiracy, and conflict of interest laws while planning the turnpike. The election board certified the petition as meeting the required threshold of 1, signatures on December Work on the turnpike continued despite the investigation.
In Decembertrees and shrubbery on condemned lots were destroyed in an attempt to prevent them from being transplanted by landscapers. A field office belonging to M. The perpetrators stole or destroyed tools and poured oil on planning documents. On the night of April 26, several vehicles at a Creek Turnpike worksite belonging to M. Lee were vandalized; the vandals smashed windshields and headlights, stole fuel caps, and dumped mud into the fuel tanks. Messages reading "Death to OTA", "Death to [Governor Henry] Bellmon " and "Death to Bartlett" who had recently also become a Tulsa city councilman were written in mud on the side of a water truck at the site.
A member of the group's board stated "We deplore this kind of cowardly, illegal action. There is no reason for some sick person to take out frustrations on the contractor[ As the employee approached the crane, four people fled the scene. The employee was able to detain two of them, both aged eighteen, until police arrived and cited them for misdemeanor malicious mischief.
Defendants in the suit included the federal agencies, state transportation and environmental agencies, and the city of Tulsa. District Judge Thomas Rutherford Brett dismissed seven of the nine claims before him, and on March 24, the plaintiffs filed a motion to drop the two remaining claims in hopes that the judge would reconsider the claims already dismissed.
The plaintiffs also filed for a restraining order to halt construction activities. OTA responded by producing U. OTA argued that the plaintiffs' requests for a restraining order and reconsideration of the dismissed claims were invalid because there was no change in their legal authority or the facts surrounding the case to warrant such a reconsideration. At the hearing, Brett said that the issue at the heart of the suit was the highway's effect on area residents.
While this was a legitimate interest, the judge said, it was not covered by the environmental laws under which the plaintiffs chose to challenge the project. Brett also pointed out that the environmental questions were at that time under review by the appropriate federal agencies. Initial turnpike plans included environmental mitigation features to reduce the amount of disruption the finished road would cause to the local environment. In the Jenks area, OTA planned to replace destroyed wetlands with new wetlands of equal or greater size.
Landscapers were expected to plant two trees for every one removed to build the road.
There, the trees would serve as a barrier between the road and the surrounding properties, masking the road from view and muffling the sounds of traffic. FEMA felt that documentation on how the project would affect the floodplains in the area was lacking, preventing local authorities from requesting updates to floodplain maps, which were necessary to keep their communities enrolled in flood insurance programs.
OTA's attorney stated that the requisite information had been provided to local officials, and it was not OTA's responsibility to ensure that they forwarded the information on to FEMA.
