TULSA, Okla - Eastbound I-244 (SW corner of IDL) is closed until further notice after a truck hit the bridge over Third Street.
Traffic is detoured from eastbound I-244 to eastbound SH-51/US-64 while crews assess damage to the bridge.
The driver of the truck was treated for his injuries and released.
Eastbound I-244 on the west leg of the IDL will not open to traffic until repair work is complete.
ODOT tells KRMG that engineers are working on different design options to select the best one and hope to finalize the details and the traffic information on the repair by Friday.
KRMG asked ODOT who is going to pay for the bridge repairs.
ODOT's Kenna Mitchell says, "Any time there is damage to state property, if we know who caused the damage, we can pursue the cost of the repairs with that person or that person's insurance party."
Mitchell tells KRMG that ODOT knows who damaged the bridge but it is too early to know how much money will be paid back and how much Oklahoma taxpayers will have to pay.
