I-44 narrows near US-64/SH-51/BA Expwy. in Tulsa beginning Monday
Drivers can expect lane closures on east and westbound I-44 between US-64/SH-51/Broken Arrow Expwy. (mm 231) and E. 41st St./Sheridan Rd. (mm 230) beginning Monday for a bridge rehabilitation project that continues through summer 2022. Two lanes of traffic in each direction on I-44 will be maintained during daytime hours; however, some overnight closures may reduce the interstate to one lane in each direction for traffic safety purposes.
This project is part of the Oklahoma Department of Transportation's Five-Year Asset Preservation Plan and help extend the life of the I-44 bridges over Sheridan Rd. and the Union Pacific Railroad with improvements to the bridge joints, structural members and a retaining wall.
The $2.6 million contract for this project was awarded by the Oklahoma Transportation Commission to Built Right Construction LLC. of Savanna, Okla., in December 2021.
Specific lane and ramp closures will be announced in ODOT's daily Tulsa Traffic Advisory, which is available online at www.odot.org.
