The start of construction on the Broken Arrow Expressway Monday frustrated a lot of you since it makes the fourth major construction project on Tulsa's highways.
We learned it will be 2013 before we see some progress in removing those construction barrels across town.
You can expect traffic congestion through the end of the year on the Broken Arrow Expressway as crews work on replacing three bridge decks between Harvard and Yale through midtown Tulsa.
The project is set to take 8 months, which would put it wrapping up at the end of December, right around the New Year.
The other three projects will stretch into 2013.
The construction at Riverside and Peoria related to the widening of I-44 is expected to wrap up in early 2013, but we swap one construction project for another since construction will be underway in the Lewis corridor on I-44 by then.
The pavement reconstruction on I-244 between Memorial and Highway 169 is expected to finish by late spring in 2013.
On the other end of I-244, crews are replacing the I-244 westbound bridge over the Arkansas River south of downtown Tulsa.
It is scheduled to be done by the summer of 2013, but here again we swap one project for another since work will start on demolishing and rebuilding the I-244 eastbound bridge over the Arkansas River.
