Today, we are joined by the leaders of Pike Off OTA, a grass-roots organization formed initially to prevent the development of two proposed turnpikes, the East-West Corridor and the South Extension, that are in the vicinity of Oklahoma City. Dr. Michael Nash, President, Whitney Mullica, Vice-President, and Dr. Amy Cerato, Board Member, talk to us about why they formed the organization and how their mission has expanded to oppose what they believe to be the overreach of the Oklahoma Turnpike Authority. We learn about the potential environmental and societal impacts of these turnpikes and how Pike Off OTA is mobilizing in opposition to the project.
