I-40 Frisco Rd. interchange project begins in Yukon Tuesday
A $14 million project constructing a new interchange on I-40 at Frisco Rd. in Yukon, once complete, is expected to help relieve significant congestion from the nearby interchange at SH-92/Garth Brooks Blvd. (mm 136), located one mile to the east of Frisco Road.
Drivers are urged to be alert to equipment and workers in this area. Frisco Rd. over I-40 is closed between 10th St. and Vandament Ave. Additionally, N.W. 23rd St. will be closed to thru-traffic from Richland Rd. and Frisco Rd. These closures are expected to continue through summer 2021.
While Vandament Ave. is expected to remain open near I-40 during construction, motorists are advised to use caution and to watch for construction trucks and equipment moving in the area.
Future lane closures on I-40 will be announced as they are scheduled. Once interstate closures start, motorists can expect I-40 to be narrowed to two lanes in each direction during peak commute times. However, I-40 possibly could be narrowed to one lane in each direction on nights and weekends, as needed. Motorists also can expect intermittent evening closures of I-40 for bridge removal.
This contract was awarded in July 2020 to Sherwood Construction Co. Inc. of Tulsa and is expected to take nearly a year to complete. The project is a partnership with the City of Yukon and the Federal Highway Administration.
