The open space plan notes that the coupling of highway development with open space provisions is in line with "current trends toward a multiple use concept by many governmental agencies. Potential greenways recommended in the open space plan include such OCARTS plan routes as the freeway loop around Oklahoma City, parts of the West Bypass in Oklahoma City, SH 9 across Cleveland County, the U.
