Roadwork begins on I-44 at the Arkansas River bridge

TULSA, Okla. — A resurfacing project on I-44 starts today.

The project will repair deck joints across the I-44/Arkansas River bridge, according to the Oklahoma Department of Transportation.

East and westbound I-44 will be narrowed at the bridge during the project and drivers can expect delays, especially during peak travel times.

ODOT urges drivers to consider alternate routes.

Work also includes resurfacing two miles of I-44 from the Arkansas River bridge to near the I-244 junction (western split). This is expected to take place over several weekends and lanes will be narrowed during those times.

The nearly $4 million project is scheduled to begin the evening of Monday, Oct. 14 and will have significant impacts to traffic through early 2020.
