Oklahoma Creates Fund for New Ports of Entry
April 30, 2012
The first of the nine stations opened last week on Interstate 35 in Kay County near the Kansas border. The new station, which cost nearly $11 million, features weigh-in-motion technology that uses road sensors to check vehicles' weight, size and permit status. This allows drivers to be approved before entering the facility.
A second port of entry will open in a few months on Interstate 40 in Beckham County near the Texas border.
