The intersection has been the site of several fatal crashes over the past couple of years. The most recent one being a dear friend of mine Lilia Lee. She was involved in a fatal car accident that led to her death in the early hours of Saturday, October  15th, 2011. In 2009, the Oklahoma Department of Transportation announced it would be putting an overpass at the intersection, but nothing has been implemented as of yet.

Letter to
Tulsa County Commissioner John Smaligo
The Oklahoma Department of Transportation
I just signed the following petition addressed to: John Smaligo, Tulsa County Commissioner and The Oklahoma Department of Transportation.

----------------
As taxpayers and resident of Oklahoma, Tulsa and Tulsa County and citizen's of a fast growing community, we are petitioning for improvements at the intersection of Highway 75 and 116th Street located in Northern Tulsa County, in the form of an overpass.

The intersection has been the site of several fatal crashes over the past couple of years.The most recent one being a dear friend of mine Lilia Lee. She was involved in a fatal car accident that led to her death in the early hours of Saturday, October 15th, 2011.

In 2009, the Oklahoma Department of Transportation announced it would be putting an overpass at the intersection, but nothing has been implemented as of yet. They then announced that they have started on the process, but the actual construction of the overpass isn’t slated till 2015. We the petitioners feel that this is unacceptable. To wait another 4 years is way too long of a time. We ask that you fast track those plans for the improvement as soon as possible, we implore you as our elected officials and community leaders to see that something be done before another fatal tragedy occurs.

What can we do to prevent another tragedy. Does another life need to be taken at this intersection to draw attention to the need. We need to band together as a community and we might get somewhere and someone might listen. Getting an overpass and exit lanes will save lives and it might just be yours, your spouse, your child or even a grandchild. We as a community must see that something is done before another precious life is lost.

So in signing this petition, I support and approve of the building of an overpass at the Intersection of Highway 75 and 116th Street. Lets act now before another life is taken.

Sincerely,
