I-235/I-44 interchange work continues through 2021; expect lane shifts and intermittent ramp closures

Motorists should be alert to the following traffic impacts in the I-235/US-77 construction zone at I-44 for ongoing reconstruction and widening that continues through 2021:

  • Motorists should be alert to changing conditions including lane shifts, narrowed lanes and workers along north and southbound I-235 between N. 50th St. and N. 63rd St. and along east and westbound I-44 between Western Ave. (mm 126) and Kelley Ave. (mm 128B). Both I-235 and I-44 will be narrowed to two lanes in each direction during peak commute hours but may narrow to one lane some nights and weekends.
  • Northbound I-235/US-77 motorists have improved access to N. 63rd St. with the shift of the exit ramp to its permanent configuration. The dedicated ramp lane is separate from northbound I-235/US-77 traffic, eliminating conflict points. Drivers will need to use caution in the area as these ramp lanes will merge into one lane approaching the N. 63rd St. traffic signal through fall 2021.
  • Eastbound I-44 to northbound I-235/US-77 traffic now has direct access to the N. 63rd St. exit lane from the far right lane of the new northbound flyover ramp.
  • Westbound I-44 off-ramp traffic will no longer merge with northbound I-235/US-77/Broadway Ext. traffic to access N. 63rd St. but will stay in the right off-ramp lane.
  • Drivers are advised to use extra caution when merging onto southbound I-235/US-77 from N. 63rd St. as this on-ramp is shifted and there is a limited merge area.

Drivers should plan ahead and use their Off Broadway alternate routes of I-35, I-40, SH-74/Lake Hefner Parkway, N. Lincoln Blvd. and Martin Luther King Ave. to avoid the area.
