OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Two of the busiest intersections in Edmond and Midwest City are set to undergo multimillion dollar construction projects.

The Oklahoman (https://bit.ly/1y1BC53 ) reports contracts were awarded Monday by the Oklahoma Transportation Commission for the projects, which will begin in about 60 days.

The Broadway and 33rd Street intersection in Edmond will be resurfaced; and island medians and new traffic signals will be added as part of a $5.1 million project that is expected to take about a year.

The intersection of Air Depot Boulevard and SE 29th street in Midwest City will have nearby ramps redone. The Midwest City project will take about 90 days to complete, and is expected to cost about $2.6 million, according to an Oklahoma Transportation Department spokesman Lisa Shearer-Salim.

A separate project was approved to add signage and a high friction surface, which will provide better traction for turning vehicles, to Interstate 40 at Town Center Drive and Air Depot Boulevard.

The projects are among 33 that were awarded Monday.
